What on earth are moral rights?

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

I thought I knew some stuff about copyright, and tonight's presentation to the monthly Editors' Association of Canada meeting confirmed that: I know some stuff. But not much.

For instance, I'd never heard of moral rights, which are separate from copyright, but related to it. After I got home, I found a good summary of copyrights and moral rights in Canada, as well as some detail about how moral rights differ in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. (They're a much smaller deal in the U.S., which may be why they're not discussed much and why I hadn't heard of them.)

Lawyer J-P Bogden, who have the presentation tonight, recommended the Web site of the Canadian Intellectual Property Office as a good resource, and it is.
