Nowadays, not only TV cables, satellites’ programs and the internet outside Iran broadcast Iranian cinematographic works without any authorization and restriction, the sale of such works is increasing in foreign countries. The breach of the creators’ rights in cinematographic works outside Iran incurs substantial damages to the cinema industry in Iran. However, these creators are not able to sue the violators and ask for compensation in the state where the rights have been breached. Currently, Iran is not a member to any copyright or related rights treaties. This Article examines and analyses the impact of the Iran’s accession to these treaties and argues that this accession plays a key role in the increase of the motivations of the creators of literary and artistic works since their rights would be protected and the scope of such protection would be expanded. This would result in the increase of the number of creative works.
