Background

The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) is a British Overseas Territory in the West Indies and North Atlantic Ocean. Turks and Caicos Islands is self-governing, and its government enacts local laws. These are generally based on United Kingdom laws.

The United Kingdom Copyright Act 1911 applies to the TCI and covers, for example, original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works, and film soundtracks.[1] The National Archives holds an online copy of the 1911 Act as originally enacted.[2]
