As I understand it, copyrights are tied to international conventions, so
some countries wanting rights not covered in the conventions will add what
are called neighbouring rights. Not a true a copyright, but close to it.
There are also conventions for neighbouring rights that countries can join
separately from the copyright conventions. Some of these are for performer
and broadcast rights.
