Background

The French colonized Grenada in 1650. In 1763 the island was ceded to the British. From 1958 to 1962 Grenada was part of the Federation of the West Indies. Grenada gained full autonomy over its internal affairs on 3 March 1967, and gained independence on 7 February 1974,

Grenada has been a member of the World Trade Organization since 22 February 1996 and the Berne Convention since 22 September 1998.[1]

As of 2018 the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, listed the Copyright Act (Cap. 67, Act No. 21 of 2011) as the main IP law enacted by the legislature of Grenada.[1] WIPO holds the text of this law in their WIPO Lex database.[2] The 2011 act repealed the Copyright Act 1988.[21/2011 Section 58]
