The Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, usually known as the Berne Convention, is an international agreement governing copyright, which was first accepted in Berne, Switzerland, in 1886.
Although widely recognized around the world, there are still some countries that are not signatories to the Berne Convention. For example: Palestine, Somalia, Iran, Iraq, etc.
What would happen if an Iranian artist or designer had their work plagiarized by an American company? Would the individual still be protected under the Berne Convention? What if the individual later immigrates to a different country that DOES PARTICIPATE in the convention?
