Cuba renews Berne relaxation options

By Berne Notification No. 270: Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, the Republic of Cuba becomes the latest country to renew its advantageous position regarding relaxations of copyright under Articles II and III of the Berne Convention [on which see earlier 1709 Blog posts here, here and here].  In short:
"The Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) .. has the honor to notify the deposit, on September 3, 2014, by the Government of the Republic of Cuba of a declaration according to which ... the Republic of Cuba will continue to avail itself of the facilities provided for in Articles II and III of the said Appendix. The said declaration shall enter into force, with respect to the territory of the Republic of Cuba, on December 3, 2014".
