International arrangements: two new SIs

The Patents (Convention Countries) (Amendment) Order 2013 adds Samoa and Vanuatu to the list of countries covered by the principal Order, following their accession to TRIPS.

The Copyright and Performances (Application to other countries) Order 2013 is a bit bigger in scope, and contains a complete consolidated list of all the countries with which the UK has relations in the relevant fields. For the first time the list includes - you guessed! - Samoa and Vanuatu, and also the Lao People's Democratic Republic.
