A new copyright law in the Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands government has committed to the modernization of the Island’s outdated copyright law.  The first step of the modernization process was completed in March 2015, when the Copyright (Cayman Islands) Order 2015 was passed.  It is hoped that the Order will be implemented in the next 3 to 5 months after a public education campaign has been completed.  The Order revokes the extension of the UK’s 1956 Copyright Act to the Cayman Islands, and as a temporary measure, extends the UK’s 1988 Act to the Cayman Islands subject to certain changes which were incorporated to make it work from a local perspective.  It is hoped that in late 2015 / early 2016 the amended 1988 Act will be repealed in Cayman and our own local legislation will be introduced subject to a suitable transition period.  The new law will ensure that Cayman is able to offer locals and international businesses alike the level of copyright protection expected on the international arena.
