The English Virginia Company settled Bermuda in 1609. In 1684 it became an English Crown Colony. Today Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory. Bermuda is self-governing, and its government enacts local laws.

As of 2019, Bermuda Laws Online showed that the relevant law was the Copyright and Designs Act 2004.[1] The act is based on the Copyright Act 1956 of the United Kingdom as extended to Bermuda by the Copyright (Bermuda) Order 1962.[2004 Sec.3(1)]
