The author has encountered more difficulties than in other areas. Usually, copyright is applied by the state legislation, especially between the states of the common law and the civil law. PI in concept relates closely to the creations of the human mind; these rights are directly protecting the creators’ interests and benefits, thereby giving them the right to own their production or work.
One of the few reasons for protecting IP rights is to promote creativity by becoming a factor in contributing to the country’s social and economic development. International copyright treaties recognize the weight of creativity and culture around the world and also help promote global norms that harmonize different countries’ copyright laws. These norms assure copyright owners that their works will be adequately protected abroad, which facilitates wider distribution and access to or use in books, movies, music and other creative works.
Publishers have consistently supported such efforts aimed at developing an international copyright protection base. However, the general exceptions and limitations for copyright protection are not suitable for harmonization international legislation as exemptions must reflect the nuances of individual national markets. International copyright treaties stimulate global norms in improving the protection and access to works that are protected by copyright law.

Specific copyright issues may include defining rights, explaining how to enforce rights in certain situations, and imposing exceptions or limitations in applying for copyright protection.

IPA, of which the AAP American Publishers Association is a member, is allowed to observe SCCR meetings, so that publishers, as key rights holders, can provide ideas and guidance on new copyright proposal proposals, for the US government and other WIPO stakeholders. VET staff also participated directly on behalf of VET as observers at SCCR meetings as well as at the WIPO General Assembly where the proposed agreements are officially considered as approved by WIPO member states.
The United States is a party to three necessary copyright treaties: the Berne Convention, the ICT and the WPT. Although these treaties were created decades ago, they still retain considerable influence over the way copyright is dealt with worldwide.
