Hintergrund

Madagascar became a French colony in 1897. The country regained independence in 1960.

Madagascar has been a member of the Berne Convention since 1 January 1966, the World Trade Organization since 17 November 1995 and the WIPO treaty since 24 February 2015.[1]

As of 2018 the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, listed Law No. 94-036 of September 18, 1995, on Literary and Artistic Property as the main copyright law enacted by the legislature of Madagascar.[1] WIPO holds the text of this law in their WIPO Lex database.[2] The law repealed Law No. 57-298 of March 11, 1957, on Literary and Artistic Property.
