Le Suriname se retrouve sous la domination hollandaise à la fin du 17e siècle. En 1954, le Suriname devient l'un des pays constituant le Royaume des Pays-Bas. Le 25 novembre 1975, le Suriname devient un état indépendant.

Le Suriname est membre de la Convention de Berne depuis le 23 février 1977 et de l'Organisation mondiale du commerce depuis le 1er janvier 1995[1].

As of 2019, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, listed the Law of March 22, 1913, laying down New Rules on Copyright (as amended up to Decree S.B No. 23 of 1981) as the main copyright law enacted by the legislature of Suriname.[1] WIPO holds the text of this law in their WIPO Lex database.[2] The law replaced Royal Decree of 11 May 1883 No. 39 (GB No. 11), but Article 11 of that decree remained in force for works and translations published before the 1913 law entered into force.[23/1981 Article 44]

The law was amended once more by act of 17 April 2015.[3] The consolidated copyright act is available on the Dutch Wikisource.
