Definition of moral rights in English:
The right of an author or other creative artist to protect the integrity and ownership of their work.
- The French Law of 1957 protects the author's moral rights in almost any creation.
- The Berne Convention also explicitly gives moral rights to authors of copyright work, a principle written into UK law, through the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act.
- In addition, copyright law confers certain moral rights including the right to be identified as the creator of a work and the right not to have that work altered detrimentally.
