CERDA SILVA, Alberto J. Copyright and Development: Beyond the Illusory Solution Provided for in the "Berne Convention Appendix". Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2012, n.38, pp.181-238. ISSN 0718-6851. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512012000100005.
The “Berne Convention Appendix” that regulates copyright internationally, establishes special rules in favor of developing countries in order to allow them meet their need to spread knowledge. Unfortunately, said rules have proved to be a failure. This article undertakes a critical analysis of the “Apendix” and outlines the proposal for a new international vehicle that provides proper flexibilities to meet the development needs.
