Example text

The movement from Berne to TRIPs has also signified a major change in the international position of “transitional” countries. During the socialist period, many of these countries had joined the Berne Convention: Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, the German Democratic Republic, Hungary, and Yugoslavia were all signatories to the most current, 1971 Paris revision. 41 Due to their general isolation from international affairs, and Soviet suspicion of international copyright law, the socialist countries were not an influential group in international copyright relations.

The capacity of national governments for independent thought is limited; the international Copyright: the legal face of globalization 25 arena offers some avenues for greater diversity in modern copyright concepts, particularly through emerging world powers, at the EU, and possibly WIPO – but their promise has yet to be realized. The new international copyright regime is likely to have an immense impact on freedom of expression.
