The intellectual property rights of broadcasting organizations, such as other intellectual property domains, is one of the most important issues for jurists, lawyers and broadcasters since 1961, when the international convention on protection of performers, producers of phonograms and broadcasting organizations was ratified in Rome. This convention, which is also called Rome convention, grants the broadcasting organizations̕ right of rebroadcasting, fixation, reproduction of fixations of broadcasts and the communication to the public of their television broadcasts. These organizations can further authorize or prohibit these actions. Unfortunately, this convention has never been revised till now, and is not coordinated with the technological advances such as webcasting and simulcasting broadcasts. This article is about to investigate if this type of broadcasts can be protected by law or not? And if they are protectable, which kind of rights are suitable for webcasters? How does their rights infringe? And what is the exceptions to the granted rights in this scope.
