Generally speaking, Dutch copyright law does not differentiate in terms of the effects of copyright law according to various work categories. The Dutch Copyright Act protects "works of literature, science or art", as exemplified in the non-exhaustive list of work categories of Article 10(1) which is modelled after Article 2(1) Berne Convention. Article 10(2) clarifies that the Act protects "every production in the domain of literature, science or art, whatever may be the mode or form of its expression". Following the adoption of the two European directives on the protection of computer programs and databases, article 10 was modified to expressly cover these among the categories of works protected by the Act. Special provisions for cinematographic works are contained in Articles 37-42 of the Act.
