This Order extends the provisions of the Copyright Act 1956, with certain exceptions and modifications, to form part of the law of the Virgin Islands.

The Order also extends to form part of the law of that country four Orders in Council, as amended, made under the provisions of the Copyright Act. Works originating in the countries specified in the Copyright (International Conventions) Order 1957 as amended, and Argentina, works produced by the international organisations specified in the Copyright (International Organisations) Order 1957 as amended, and broadcasts to the public made in countries to which section 14 of the Copyright Act has been extended by Order in Council will now enjoy in the Virgin Islands protection similar to that which they at present enjoy in the United Kingdom and broadcasts made in the Virgin Islands will enjoy similar protection in each of those countries to which the Copyright (Broadcasting Organisations) Order 1961 has been extended.
