         (2)   Where:

                (a)    an amendment of these Regulations inserts a Part in, or adds a Part at the end of, Schedule 1 or inserts the name of a country in, or adds the name of a country at the end of, a Part of Schedule 1; and

                nothing in these Regulations diminishes or prejudices any right or interest arising from or in connexion with that action that is subsisting and valuable immediately before the date on which the amendment comes into operation unless the person who, by virtue of the operation of these Regulations upon the country being specified in that Part of that Schedule, has the exclusive right to do that act agrees to pay to the first-mentioned person such compensation as is reasonable in the circumstances.

         (3)   Where:

                (a)    a Part of Schedule 1 is remade;

               (b)    the name of a country is, upon the remaking of the Part, specified in the Part; and

                (c)    the name of that country was not, immediately before the remaking of the Part, specified in the Part;

                the remaking of that Part shall, for the purposes of the last preceding subregulation, be deemed to be an amendment of these Regulations that inserts the name of that country in that Part.

12            Modification of application of provisions of the Act to sound broadcasts and television broadcasts

         (1)   If a person has, at any time before the commencement of this regulation, taken action by which he or she has incurred expenditure or liability in connection with the doing of an act in relation to a sound broadcast, or to a television broadcast, in a manner that at the time was lawful, or for the purpose of or with a view to the doing of an act in relation to a sound broadcast, or to a television broadcast, at a time when the doing of the act would, but for the making of this regulation, have been lawful, nothing in these Regulations diminishes or prejudices any right or interest arising in connection with the action that is subsisting and valuable immediately before the commencement of this regulation unless the person who, by virtue of the operation of these Regulations, has the exclusive right to do the act agrees to pay reasonable compensation to the first-mentioned person.

         (2)   If:

                (a)    by an amendment of these Regulations the name of a country is included in Part 4 of Schedule 1; and

               (b)    a person has, at any time before the date on which the amendment comes into operation, taken action by which he or she has incurred expenditure or liability in connection with the doing of an act in relation to a sound broadcast, or to a television broadcast, in a manner that at the time was lawful, or for the purpose of or with a view to the doing of an act in relation to a sound broadcast, or to a television broadcast, at a time when the doing of the act would, but for the amendment, have been lawful;

                nothing in these Regulations diminishes or prejudices any right or interest arising in connection with the action that is subsisting and valuable immediately before the commencement of the amendment unless the person who, by virtue of the country being included in Part 4 of Schedule 1, has the exclusive right to do the act agrees to pay reasonable compensation to the first-mentioned person.

         (3)   For the purposes of subregulation (2), if:

                (a)    Part 4 of Schedule 1 is remade; and

               (b)    on the remaking, the name of a country is included in the Part; and

                (c)    immediately before the remaking, the name of the country was not included in the Part;

                the remaking of the Part is taken to be an amendment of these Regulations that inserts the name of the country in Part 4.

         (1)   If a person has, at any time before the commencement of this regulation, taken action by which he or she has incurred expenditure or liability in connection with the doing of an act in relation to a performance in a manner that at the time was lawful, or for the purpose of or with a view to the doing of an act in relation to a performance at a time when the doing of the act would, but for the making of this regulation, have been lawful, nothing in these Regulations diminishes or prejudices any right or interest arising in connection with the action that is subsisting and valuable immediately before the commencement of this regulation unless the performer of the performance agrees to pay reasonable compensation to the person.

         (2)   If:

                (a)    by an amendment of these Regulations the name of a country is included in Part 4 or 5 of Schedule 1; and

               (b)    a person has, at any time before the date on which the amendment comes into operation, taken action by which he or she has incurred expenditure or liability in connection with the doing of an act in relation to a performance in a manner that at the time was lawful, or for the purpose of or with a view to the doing of an act in relation to a performance at a time when the doing of the act would, but for the amendment, have been lawful;

                nothing in these Regulations diminishes or prejudices any right or interest arising in connection with the action that is subsisting and valuable immediately before the commencement of the amendment unless the performer of the performance agrees to pay reasonable compensation to the person.

         (3)   For the purposes of subregulation (2), if:

                (a)    Part 4 of Schedule 1 is remade; and

               (b)    on the remaking, the name of a country is included in the Part; and

                (c)    immediately before the remaking, the name of the country was not included in the Part;
