Abstract

This is the second part of a two-part article on the newly introduced moral rights regime for performers (Part 1 can be found in Issue 11 of 2006). This part critically analyses the UK implementation of the integrity right, in the context of the UK's international obligations in this field and considers its likely impact of performers, broadcasters, recording companies and other interested parties. It then discusses issues which affect both the integrity and the paternity right, including the ability of performers to waive and dispose of their rights, and whether these provisions undermine the effectiveness of the regime as a whole. It concludes with a relatively pessimistic prediction about the likely effect of the new regime as a whole on performers.
