Governing laws

Oman has been an independent state for centuries.

Oman has been a member of the Berne Convention since 14 July 1999, the World Trade Organization since 9 November 2000 and the WIPO Copyright Treaty since 20 September 2005.[1]

As of 2018 the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, listed Royal Decree No. 65/2008 promulgating the Law on Copyright and Related Rights as the main copyright law issued by the Executive of Oman.[1] WIPO holds the text of this law in their WIPO Lex database.[2]
