UAE: Amendments to Copyrights and Neighbouring Rights Law Approved

The UAE’s President has approved amendments to the Federal Copyrights and Neighbouring Rights Law.

The amendments offer special benefits for disabled people to improve their participation in this vital sector.

It covers all substantive issues relating to author’s rights and neighbouring rights, including the right to determine first publication of the work, the right of writing the work in their name and the right to protest against alteration of the work if the alteration leads to the author’s intent being distorted.

The amendments are aimed at maximising the creative industries’ contribution to the UAE economy.

They are also aimed providing authors of the works and the holders of the neighbouring rights with more rights where their rights are violated.
