This paper will first discuss the moral rights legislation in various jurisdictions. It will then provide a short overview of open licensing on the Internet. Finally, it will analyze whether open licensing (particularly the Creative Commons scheme) is capable of providing meaningful protection of an author’s moral rights, and what alternatives or complements to Creative Commons might exist.
