Sao Tomé-et-Principe est membre de la Convention de Berne depuis le 14 juin 2016[1].

Jusqu'en 1972, les règles en matière de droits d'auteur à Sao Tomé-et-Principe étaient définies par ce texte : Decree No. 13,725 du 27 mai 1927. Le 22 février 1972 il a été remplacé par : Decree-Law No. 46980 du 27 avril 1966. Ce dernier a à son tour été remplacé par : Decree-Law No. 02/2017[2].

En 2018, l'Organisation mondiale de la propriété intellectuelle (OMPI), une agence des Nations Unies, a enregistré le Code des droits d'auteur et des droits voisins (approuvé par le décret-loi n° 02/2017) comme étant la principale loi sur le droit d'auteur promulguée par la législature de Sao Tomé-et-Principe[1]. L'OMPI conserve le texte de cette loi dans sa base de données WIPO Lex (en anglais)[3].
