The territory of modern Guatemala was conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. Guatemala attained independence in 1821 as part of the Federal Republic of Central America, which dissolved by 1841.

Le Guatemala est membre de la Convention universelle sur le droit d'auteur (en anglais) depuis le 28 octobre 1964, de l'Organisation mondiale du commerce depuis le 21 juillet 1995, de la Convention de Berne depuis le 28 juillet 1997 et du Traité de l'OMPI depuis le 4 février 2003[1].

As of 2018 the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, listed the Law on Copyright and Related Rights (Decree No. 33-98, as amended up to Decree No. 11-2006 of the Congress of the Republic) as the main copyright law enacted by the legislature of Guatemala.[1] WIPO holds the text of this law in their WIPO Lex database.[2]
