Overseas copyright - Is my work protected by copyright overseas?



New Zealand is a party to a number of international treaties and agreements dealing with copyright protection. As a result, most work created by New Zealand residents, citizens and nationals will be recognised in most other countries. Similarly, most work created by people overseas is also protected in New Zealand under the Copyright Act.

If your work is to be published or distributed overseas, you may need advice from a legal professional who is familiar with the copyright law of the relevant country.
