Broadcasting Treaty

On Wednesday, 26 September 2018, during discussions of the WIPO
broadcasting treaty, Argentina presented the following roadmap to finalize
preparations for the convening of a Diplomatic Conference to conclude a
Treaty for the Protection of Broadcasting Organizations. It remains to be
seen if the 2018 WIPO General Assembly will accept this proposal by
consensus.
------------------------------

In light of paragraph 29, ii) document WO/GA/50/30, the following work-plan
for completing the work on the broadcasting treaty is proposed for adoption
of the General Assembly.

– SCCR/37 to finalize the outstanding key issue(s) and to deliver a full
draft for a Basic Proposal for consideration at the SCCR/38 meeting. With
this aim, the necessary arrangements should be made in order to devote
enough time to broadasting in the SCCR/37;

– SCCR/38 to note the progress made, and, if key issues remain outstanding
at the end of SCCR/38, to schedule a further session before the GA 2019,
dedicated exclusively to finalizing the Basic Proposal;

– SCCR/38 to propose a preliminary date and venue for the Diplomatic
Conference to take place approximately six months after the SCCR/38 or the
latest scheduled session, as the case may be;

– The GA 2019 to confirm the proposed date and venue of the Diplomatic
Conference.
