Background

The Isle of Man is a self-governing British Crown dependency in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland.

The relevant copyright law is The Copyright Act 1991, as amended up to the Copyright (Amendment) Regulations 2013.[1] This act replaced the United Kingdom's Copyright Act 1956. The Copyright Act 1991 was largely based on the United Kingdom's Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (Part I) Subsequent amendments have extended the duration of copyright and covered electronic transmission of works.[1]

A copy of The Copyright Act 1991 is held on the Isle of Man legislation website.[2] The Tynwald website holds the Copyright (Amendment) Regulations 2013, effective 1 April 2013, which give changes that are not reflected in the text of th 1991 act.[3]
