Recognizing the profound impact of the development and convergence of information and communication technologies on the creation and use of literary and artistic works,
Emphasizing the outstanding significance of copyright protection as an incentive for literary and artistic creation,

Article 5
Compilations of Data (Databases)
Compilations of data or other material, in any form, which by reason of the selection or arrangement of their contents constitute intellectual creations, are protected as such. This protection does not extend to the data or the material itself and is without prejudice to any copyright subsisting in the data or material contained in the compilation.
Article 6
Right of Distribution
(1) Authors of literary and artistic works shall enjoy the exclusive right of authorizing the making available to the public of the original and copies of their works through sale or other transfer of ownership.

(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply
(i) in the case of computer programs, where the program itself is not the essential object of the rental; and
(ii) in the case of cinematographic works, unless such commercial rental has led to widespread copying of such works materially impairing the exclusive right of reproduction.
(3) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (1), a Contracting Party that, on April 15, 1994, had and continues to have in force a system of equitable remuneration of authors for the rental of copies of their works embodied in phonograms may maintain that system provided that the commercial rental of works embodied in phonograms is not giving rise to the material impairment of the exclusive right of reproduction of authors.

In respect of photographic works, the Contracting Parties shall not apply the provisions of Article 7(4) of the Berne Convention.
Article 10
Limitations and Exceptions

priznavajo potrebo po uvedbi novih mednarodnih pravil in pojasnitvi razlage določenih obstoječih pravil zaradi ustrezne rešitve vprašanj, ki se postavljajo v zvezi z novim gospodarskim, družbenim, kulturnim in tehnološkim razvojem,
priznavajo velik vpliv razvoja in zbliževanja informacijskih ter komunikacijskih tehnologij na ustvarjanje in uporabo književnih in umetniških del,
poudarjajo izreden pomen varstva avtorske pravice kot spodbude za književno in umetniško ustvarjanje,
priznavajo potrebo po ohranitvi ravnotežja med pravicami avtorjev in širšim javnim interesom predvsem na področju izobraževanja, raziskovanja in dostopa do informacij, kot se to kaže v Bernski konvenciji,
zato so sklenile, kot sledi:
1. člen
Razmerje do Bernske konvencije
(1) Za pogodbenice, ki so države Unije, ustanovljene z Bernsko konvencijo za varstvo književnih in umetniških del, pomeni ta pogodba poseben sporazum v smislu 20. člena te konvencije. Pogodba nima nobene povezave z drugimi pogodbami razen z Bernsko konvencijo ter ne vpliva na pravice in obveznosti iz katere koli druge pogodbe.
(2) Nič v tej pogodbi ne ukinja obstoječih obveznosti, ki jih imajo pogodbenice druga do druge po Bernski konvenciji za varstvo književnih in umetniških del.

(4) Pogodbenice upoštevajo 1. do 21. člen Bernske konvencije in njeno prilogo.

4. člen
Računalniški programi
Računalniški programi so varovani kot književna dela v smislu 2. člena Bernske konvencije. To varstvo se uporablja za računalniške programe ne glede na način ali obliko, v kateri so izraženi.
5. člen
Zbirke podatkov (baze podatkov)
Zbirke podatkov ali drugega gradiva v kakršni koli obliki, ki po izbiri ali razporeditvi vsebine pomenijo intelektualne stvaritve, so varovane kot takšne. To varstvo ne obsega samih podatkov ali samega gradiva in ne posega v katero koli avtorsko pravico na podatkih ali gradivu, vsebovanem v zbirki.
6. člen
Pravica do distribuiranja
(1) Avtorji književnih in umetniških del uživajo izključno pravico dovoljevati, da izvirnik in primerki njihovih del postanejo dostopni javnosti s prodajo ali drugačnim prenosom lastninske pravice.

(2) Prvi odstavek se ne uporablja
(i) za računalniške programe, če sam program ni bistven predmet najema, in
(ii) za kinematografska dela, razen če je posledica takšnega dajanja v komercialni najem obsežno kopiranje teh del, ki bistveno prizadene izključno pravico do reproduciranja.
(3) Ne glede na določbe prvega odstavka lahko pogodbenica, ki je imela na dan 15. aprila 1994 v veljavi sistem pravičnega nadomestila avtorjem za dajanje primerkov njihovih del, vsebovanih na fonogramih, v najem in ga še vedno ima, obdrži ta sistem pod pogojem, da komercialno dajanje del, vsebovanih na fonogramih, v najem bistveno ne prizadene izključne pravice avtorjev do reproduciranja.
8. člen

Brez vpliva na določbe točke (ii) prvega odstavka 11. člena, točk (i) in (ii) prvega odstavka 11. bis člena, točke (ii) prvega odstavka 11. ter člena, točke (ii) prvega odstavka 14. člena in prvega odstavka 14. bis člena Bernske konvencije avtorji književnih in umetniških del uživajo izključno pravico dovoljevati vsako javno priobčitev svojih del po žici ali brezžično, vključno s tem, da postanejo njihova dela dostopna javnosti na način, ki omogoča posameznikom dostop do njih s kraja in v času, ki ju sami izberejo.

(1) Pogodbenice lahko v svoji domači zakonodaji predvidijo omejitve ali izjeme glede pravic, ki jih avtorjem književnih in umetniških del daje ta pogodba, v nekaterih posebnih primerih, ki niso v nasprotju z običajno uporabo dela in pretirano ne posegajo v zakonite interese avtorja.
(2) Pogodbenice morajo pri uporabi Bernske konvencije skrčiti vse omejitve ali izjeme od pravic, ki so določene v njej, na nekatere posebne primere, ki niso v nasprotju z običajno uporabo dela in pretirano ne posegajo v zakonite interese avtorja.
11. člen
Obveznosti glede tehničnih ukrepov
Pogodbenice zagotovijo ustrezno pravno varstvo in učinkovita pravna sredstva zoper izognitev dejanskim tehničnim ukrepom, ki jih uporabljajo avtorji v zvezi z uresničevanjem svojih pravic po tej pogodbi ali Bernski konvenciji in ki omejujejo dejanja v zvezi z njihovimi deli, ki jih niso dovolili ali ki po zakonu niso dovoljena.
12. člen
Obveznosti v zvezi s podatki za upravljanje pravic
(1) Pogodbenice zagotovijo ustrezna in učinkovita pravna sredstva zoper vse osebe, ki zavestno storijo katero koli od naslednjih dejanj in vedo ali bi v primeru civilnopravnih sredstev iz utemeljenih razlogov lahko vedele, da bo to povzročilo, omogočilo, olajšalo ali prikrilo kršitev katere koli pravice, urejene s to pogodbo ali z Bernsko konvencijo:
(i) odstranitev ali sprememba katerega koli elektronskega podatka za upravljanje pravic brez dovoljenja;
(ii) distribuiranje, uvoz zaradi distribuiranja, radiodifuzno oddajanje ali javna priobčitev del ali primerkov del brez dovoljenja, vedoč, da so bili elektronski podatki za upravljanje pravic odstranjeni ali spremenjeni brez dovoljenja.
(2) Pojem “podatki za upravljanje pravic”, kot je uporabljen v tem členu, pomeni podatke, ki identificirajo delo, avtorja dela, imetnika katere koli pravice na delu, ali podatke o pogojih uporabe dela oziroma katere koli številke ali kode, ki pomenijo takšne podatke, če je kateri izmed njih dodan primerku dela ali se pojavlja v zvezi z njegovo javno priobčitvijo.
13. člen
Časovna uporaba
