After Iran's application for accession to the World Trade Organization was submitted to the WTO Secretariat on 19 July 1996 and accepted by consensus on 26 May 2005, Iran actually entered into the process of accession, the successful completion of which requires taking a number of measures, one of which is to comply with the WTO rules and regulations in terms of, inter alia, intellectual property rights. This compliance requires that the acceding country explores the discrepancies and lacunae in its legislation on the one hand and remove them on the other. This article embarks on the former in respect of copyright and related rights.
