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

The Order also extends three Orders in Council made under Part V of that Act. The extension of these Orders will afford protection in the Cayman Islands to works originating in countries party to International Copyright Conventions, to works produced by certain international organisations and to lawfully authorised broadcasts originating in other Commonwealth countries to which the 1956 Act has already been extended.

The copyright protection afforded in the law of the Cayman Islands will be similar to that afforded in the law of the United Kingdom.
