All rights reserved

All rights reserved

"All rights reserved" is a phrase that originated in copyright law as part of copyright notices. Copyright law in most countries no longer requires such notices, but the phrase persists. The original understanding of the phrase as relating specifically to copyright may have been supplanted by common usage of the phrase to refer to any legal right, although it is probably understood to refer "at least" to copyright.

In former times, the phrase was required as a result of the Buenos Aires Convention of 1910 which mandated that some statement of reservation of rights be made in order to secure protection in signatory countries of the convention. [cite web |url= |title= The phrase "All rights reserved" |accessdate=2007-12-27 |last= Engelfriet |first= Arnoud |coauthors= |date= 2006 |work= Ius mentis] it was required to add the term "All rights reserved" as a written notice that all rights granted under existing copyright law (i.e., the right to publish a work within a specific area) are retained by the copyright holder and that legal action may be taken against infringement.

The requirement to add a notice became obsolete and essentially deprecated on August 23, 2000, as every country that was a member of the Buenos Aires Convention (which is the only copyright treaty requiring this notice to be used) is also a member of the Berne Convention which requires protection be granted without any formality of notice of copyright.
