Summary In December 2000 Australian architects, filmmakers, writers, performers, visual artists, makers of multimedia products and other similar 'authors' gained additional protection of their reputation (and therefore income) in connection to the outcomes of their intellectual and creative endeavours. They gained in law the 'moral' rights of attribution and integrity. The right of attribution gives the author the right to be acknowledged as the author whenever certain acts, such as publication, reproduction or public performance occur. The right of integrity gives the author the right to prevent any action in relation to the work that is prejudicial to his or her honour or reputation. This book explains moral rights and how they apply in Australia
