Abstract

In 2000 Australia introduced systematic moral rights provisions into its copyright legislation. It was one of the last of the copyright countries to do so and had therefore had many examples to follow. This article is about the configuration of moral rights in Australia and the ways in which boundaries between the authorial interests and those of the broader society have been drawn. It can be seen that the moral rights of authors in Australia are organised and managed in significantly different ways from their counterparts in other copyright countries.

Keywords: Copyright, Moral Rights, Australia
