Most countries in the world are signatories to at least one of the Berne Convention or the UCC, there are in fact some countries (of which the UK is one) that are signatories to both conventions.
In the UK the CDPA affords protection to works that qualify for protection in other signatory states. Where an infringement is found it is important to be aware that remedies are on a territory by territory basis i.e. infringement in the UK will only give relief in the UK.
Under the UCC it is a requirement that copyright works have the (c) symbol displayed with the name of the copyright owner and the year of first publication alongside it.
