ABSTRACT
The Copyright System as established by the Bern Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works1, did not provide the necessary protection to those “parties” involved in bringing the work to the public, although it represented a major role in promoting the work. So it was necessary for the legal protection to be regulated in order to allow them to benefit from the entire moral and economic attributes resulted from their work. To remedy the absence of protection due to copyright applicable traditional rules, a new protection system was created: that of related rights2. On international level, this led to the adoption in 1961 of the Rome Convention for the Protection of Performers, Producers of Phonograms and Broadcasting Organizations3, considered in the literature4 as arising of the Bern Convention, alongside the TRIPS Agreement and the WIPO Treaties in this filed.
