The WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty, signed at Geneva on 20 December 1996 by about fifty countries at the same time as the WIPO Copyright Treaty, this treaty improves on the rights that record makers and performers have under the Rome Convention. Thus, performers are granted moral rights, and the same measures against decryption and circumvention of tracking devices are provided for records as the WIPO Copyright Treaty provides for traditional "works."
