Sweden- booklet on copyright

This booklet  -produced by the Swedish government- contains a short description of the legal provisions that

govern the copyright system. The booklet describes what is protected by

copyright law, the rights an author has in respect of his or her work and

how long they apply. Information is also provided on how to obtain copyright

protection, when works may be used freely without permission and what

happens when copyright is infringed.


In addition, a brief description is given of the international aspects of

copyright protection and of rights related to copyright (neighbouring

rights). The newly established provisions on protection of technological

measures and electronic rights management systems are also described
