Enforcing copyright abroad
Most countries of the world are members of one or more international agreements. This means automatic protection in all member countries for works created in the UK.
As such all the Western European countries, the USA and Russia offer automatic protection. For a full list please see the WIPO, WTO and UNESCO websites.
The most notable agreement is the Berne Convention, which the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) administers.
