MOROCCAN LAW ON COPYRIGHT AND RELATED RIGHTS OF FEBRUARY 15, 2000

Morocco has a rich legacy of French law, which included a European intellectual property aspect. Yet, the French law was set aside in part to make way for the Intellectual Property Rights that would fit it within the global economy represented by World Intellectual Property Organization, which Morocco assented to the standards of, first in the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property, or TRIPS Agreement, and then in the Law No. 2-00 on Copyright and Related Rights of February 15, 2000.

How Does Copyright Ownership Work? What are the Formalities and Documentation for Moroccan Copyright? Does the Law Treat as Special Moroccan National Folklore?
