Moral rights attach to the author of a copyright work, and are distinct to rights that attach to its owner.

Sometimes described as ‘personal’ rights (as opposed to ‘economic’ rights), these rights cannot be sold or assigned. In New Zealand, these include the right to proper attribution and the right to object to derogatory treatment of the work. Enforcing these rights, however, can be very difficult. Moreover, the interests of moral rights holders might clash with the interests of economic rights owners.

Through real-life cases, Susan explores how these two competing interests are balanced and managed when the rights collide, and brings to the table her own perspective from her practical experience in dispute resolution and litigation.
