Background

Saint Christopher Island(Saint Kitts) was colonized by the English in 1623, and soon after was partitioned with the French. The French ceded their part to the United Kingdom in 1713. St. Kitts and Nevis became independent in 1983.

Saint Kitts and Nevis has been a member of the Berne Convention since 9 April 1995 and the World Trade Organization since 21 February 1996, as well as a signatory to various other international treaties.[1]

As of 2018 the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, listed the Copyright Act (Cap. 18.08) of 2002 as the main copyright law enacted by the legislature of Saint Kitts and Nevis.[1] WIPO holds the text of this law in their WIPO Lex database.[2]
