Greenland on the globe (Greenland centered).svg

Greenland is an autonomous constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark. On 21 June 2009 Greenland gained self-rule with provisions for assuming responsibility for self-government of judicial affairs, policing, and natural resources.

Greenland and the Faroe islands are members of WIPO and party to most international treaties, but are not members of the European Union. Denmark has harmonized most of its intellectual property laws with the rest of Europe, and as of 2019 the laws of Greenland have been brought into conformance with Denmark.[1]

As of 2019, the copyright law of Greenland is effectively in accordance with the Copyright Act of Denmark, and therefore Danish copyright templates will be applicable, including for public documents.
