WA Copyright Charter


A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Education and CreativityArea of Effect: ArtisticProposed by: Glen-Rhodes
Description: Desiring to
strengthen and protect the rights of authors in their literary and
artistic works, as well as in the intellectual means of the production
of such works,



Recognizing the legitimacy of national copyright laws, but
understanding that international rules must be established to protect
the rights of authors abroad,



The World Assembly therefore



DEFINES, for the purpose of this resolution, “copyright law” as any
law that grants the author of an original work of creative artistic or
literary value exclusive right for a certain period of time in relation
to that work, including its publication, distribution, and adaptation,
after which time the work enters the public domain; “public domain” as
the collection of works neither protected under copyright law nor under
state ownership, available for free use by the public; “intellectual
property” as intangible property that is the result of original
artistic and commercial creativity, and that owners have been granted
exclusive right over; “fair use” as the use of any copyrighted work or
intellectual property for educational, personal, private, critical, or
satirical purposes, provided that such use does not excessively
infringe on the exclusive right or profits of the owner;



REAFFIRMS that national copyright laws apply to works created,
distributed, and used in that nation, regardless of the origin of such
works or the nationality or citizenship of the owner,



NOTES that such affirmation does not grant immunity to persons or
institutions being held liable by foreign governments or copyright
holders for the infringement of any copyrighted work or intellectual
property, given that sufficient proof can establish a direct intent to
infringe upon the rights of the owner of the copyrighted work or
intellectual property;



DECLARES that national copyright laws must grant the following
rights and protections to the owners of any copyrighted work or
intellectual property: the owner’s exclusive right over the work or
intellectual property, including its publication, distribution, and
adaptation; the right of immediate copyright protection abroad of a
work following placement in tangible form, with no legal or statutory
formalities required for protection; the protection of the work or
intellectual property from the publication, distribution, adaptation,
display, demonstration, reproduction, and storage in electronic form by
any person or government entity without the consent of the owner, for a
period of time extending at least twenty-five years after the death of
the creator, or the shorter of thirty years from publication or forty
years from creation, if the work is of corporate authorship;



FURTHER DECLARES that national copyright laws must not discriminate
in favor of domestic works, however affirming that nations may subject
domestic works to additional requirements for copyright protection;



ALSO AFFIRMS that copyrighted works may be used freely and legally, if such use can be proven to be legitimate fair use;



PROTECTS the right of a copyright holder or intellectual property
owner to sell, trade, or otherwise transfer their exclusive right to
another party; to release the copyrighted work or intellectual property
in to the public domain; and to license the use of copyrighted work or
intellectual property to any person or institution, under any
reasonable terms they so wish.
