Abstract:At the meeting of the Committee of African Experts to Study a Draft Model Copyright Law at Paris in 1965, the representatives recommended a model law, setting forth special protections for African folklore. However, only Tunisia has included similar protections in its new copyright law. The author outlines a program that enables developing African nations to maximize their positive asset: the folklore. Hereby folklore is not limited to the book medium; the article also discusses African copyright concerning African music and dance, which are available primarily through the media of records and films.
