Moral law aims to protect the personality of the author as expressed in the work. This moral right confirms the link that exists between the author's person and his creation. Because of the existence of this intrinsic link, the author cannot cede his moral rights to third parties, contrary to his property rights. Moral rights include the divulgation right, the paternity right and the right to respect for the work.
The divulgation right is the author's right to disclose the work to the public. Only the author has the right to decide when his work is finished and when the public may take note of it. For example: if an author sends his manuscript for a book to his publisher for his advice, the publisher does not have the right to publish this book. This would constitute a violation of the author's right of divulgation.
Authors have a paternity right to their works. This means that they have the right to be recognised as the author of a creation and that they may therefore oblige third parties to disclose the work under the author's name. In this case, the author's name must appear on the work. This paternity right can also be exercised in a negative sense: the author may decide to use a pseudonym or to distribute his work anonymously.
Right to respect for the work (integrity right)
The right of respect, or the right to the integrity of the work, allows the author to oppose any modification or deformation of his work.The author may oppose any modification that would affect the physical integrity of a work, as well as any material modification of the work. The author may also invoke these moral rights when the use of a work violates the spirit of the work, for example by altering its context or meaning.
Filip Sas, here using the pseudonym Dreamers®, can prove that he is the author of the works shown on this website. Unlike patents, which are inventions, authors do not have to complete any formalities or take steps to benefit from copyright protection for their work. Copyright protection is automatic from the moment when an original work is involved and it is included in a concrete form. According to the Belgian and Benelux legislation on Intellectual Property, authors cannot globally waive the future exercise of their moral rights. Even if the employer has acquired the property rights to the creations of his employees, he will still have to respect their moral rights. Moral rights are not transferable and an employee's promise not to invoke them will not be valid.
