This paper analyses the copyright provisions of the leaked 30 August 2013 text of the TPP IP Chapter. It is a companion to an already-published analysis of the enforcement provisions. The goal is to go through the text, section by section, and assess the effect of the provisions, their compatibility with other international instruments: including TRIPS, the WCT and WPPT, and an example US FTA (the Australia-US FTA).
