Background

Niue is an island country in the South Pacific Ocean. Niue was brought within the boundaries of New Zealand on 11 June 1901 by the same Order and Proclamation as the Cook Islands. The New Zealand Parliament restored self-government in Niue with the 1974 constitution. It is now a self-governing state in free association with New Zealand. It is not a member of the United Nations.

Niue has been a member of the Berne Convention since 23 September 2016.[1]

As of 2019 the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, listed the laws of Niue as of 2006. None covered copyright, but under the Niue Act 1966, Section 737 Protection of intellectual property, "A copyright, design, patent, or trademark protected by New Zealand law shall be accorded the same protection by the courts of Niue as that available in New Zealand under the laws of New Zealand for the time being in force."[2] The Copyright Act 1962 of New Zealand thus presumably applies on Niue.[3]
