DIPLOMATIC CONFERENCE
ON
CERTAIN COPYRIGHT AND NEIGHBORING RIGHTS QUESTIONS

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.
