Berne is an attempt to simplify international copyright protection by bringing together several nations (there are now 79 members) into a union whose goal is to protect copyrights throughout the world.
The basic principles of Berne are to (1) bring about better worldwide copyright protection against infringement and piracy; (2) the promotion of international uniform copyright legislation; and (3) the elimination of discrimination against foreign copyrights.
Since there is a strong likelihood that any record or song might end up being exploited in a foreign country, the creator should understand how his or her rights will be affected in that foreign country, especially if there is evidence that the work is being stolen, distorted or pirated.
