AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE 12(1) OF DRAFT TREATY No. 1

proposed by the Delegation of Israel

The Delegation of Israel proposes the following changes to Article 12(1):

To replace the word only with the phrase to an extent with exceptions or limitations provided for in the Berne Convention and... Accordingly, Article 12(1) would read as follows:

(1) Contracting Parties may, in their national legislation, provide for limitations of or exceptions to the rights granted to authors of literary and artistic works under this Treaty to an extent consistent with exceptions or limitations provided for in the Berne Convention and in certain special cases that do not conflict with a normal exploitation of the work and do not unreasonably prejudice the legitimate interests of the author.
