Geneva, December 2 to 20, 1996
AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE 2(a) OF DRAFT TREATY Nº 2
proposed by the Delegation of Jamaica
It is proposed that Article 2(a) which contains a definition of performers be amended by the deletion of the word interpret from the text. If the word interpret remains in the text, it may broaden the application in English-speaking territories. Further, it is noted that this word does not appear in the definition of performers in the Rome Convention, 1961, at Article 3(a). If necessary, the word interpret could be retained in the Spanish and French texts of the Draft Treaty.
