Default The Berne Convention

What would computer programs be that would fit under the Berne Convention? I know that (at least in Canada) you don't haveto pay for a copyright for them, but I don't know if they're protected by the Berne Convention - I believe that they would be as artistic works though. Any help?

EDIT: Never mind. I found out that they're actually Literary works, or so says the Canadian Government..... (http://www.cipo.ic.gc.ca/epic/site/c...0506e.html#no2)

That would make sense, considering that code is usually text.
