GENERAL INTRODUCTION

l.l.BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

For the vast majority of Ugandans, the law of copyright1 is the least of their concerns given that it is a relatively recent development in Uganda as it was first introduced by the British during their colonial regime in Uganda. In colonial times, Uganda was a protectorate rather than a colony - a system of indirect rule that granted Uganda some degree of autonomy from the British administration? In Uganda, the law of copyright was initially designed to protect British authors of literary, artistic, scientific and musical works within the Ugandan protectorate.
