Is copyright law the same throughout the world?

Copyright protection is a national right and therefore the scope of protection given to artists and authors is different from country to country and depends upon national legislation. However, there are a number of international conventions under which copyright created or owned by a national of a member country is given protection under the laws of other member states, as if they were a national of that country. The most important of these conventions (the so-called Berne Convention) means that individuals or companies based in the UK have copyright protection in 175 other countries.
