This chapter focuses on moral rights conferred by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 on the authors of certain works to protect their non-pecuniary or non-economic interests. It begins by looking at a number of criticisms made about moral rights, followed by a discussion on examples of moral rights, namely: right of attribution or right of paternity, right to object to false attribution, and right of integrity. The issue of copyright infringement in relation to these rights is also considered.
