DIPLOMATIC CONFERENCE

CERTAIN COPYRIGHT AND NEIGHBORING RIGHTS QUESTIONS

Geneva, December 2 to 20, 1996

AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE 13 OF TREATY No. 1
AND ARTICLE 22 OF TREATY No. 2

proposed by the Delegation of Jamaica

Obligations Concerning Technological Measures

1. It is proposed that Article 13(1) of Treaty No. 1 and the corresponding Article 22(1) of Treaty No. 2, be amended by the deletion of the words "to know" in line 3 and by adding in their place the words "for knowing" so that this portion of the text would read as follows:

    ... by any person knowing or having reasonable grounds for knowing...

2. It is proposed that Article 13(3) of Treaty No. 1 and the corresponding Article 22(3) of Treaty No. 2, be amended by the deletion of the words "any of the acts covered by" in lines 3 to 4 and by adding in their place the words "the contravention of" or the words "the infringement of" so that this portion of the text would read as follows:

    ... mechanism or system that prevents or inhibits the contravention/infringement of the rights under this Treaty.

It is felt that the formulation "any of the acts covered by the rights under this Treaty" is broad and un-precise.
