The Copyright (International Conventions) (Amendment) Order 1986
Her Majesty's Stationary Office
This Order corrects an error In the Copyright (International Conventions) (Amendment) Order 1984, which amended the Copyright (International Conventions) Order 1979. The 1984 Order applied the Copyright Act 1956 to copyright works from Belize as a result of That country's accession to the Universal Copyright Convention (Cmnd. 4905); but because of the provisions of Article VII of that Convention, which excludes from the Convention's protection works published before the accession of the country in question, the 1984 Order did not apply the 1956 Act to works from Belize published before its accession. This, however, was inappropriate for a former dependency of the United Kingdom to which the 1956 Act had previously been extended (the Copyright (British Honduras) Order 1966 (S.l. 1966/685)). Article 2 therefore causes the 1956 Act to apply once again to works published before the accession of Belize.
