This chapter begins by examining the rights granted exclusively to authors—moral rights and artist’s resale right. It discusses ‘moral rights’ first, that is, the right to be identified as the author of the protected work, and to have that work’s integrity respected by others, followed by the artist’s resale right. The rest of this chapter discusses fundamental rules and controls on exploitation and use of copyright. This includes dealings in copyright, such as assignment and licensing; specific features of copyright exploitation, for example collective licensing; and also contemporary issues related to the use of copyright works, for example the challenge of orphan works for users, and the application of technological protection measures by right owners to prevent unauthorised use of or access to protected works.
