(a)the rights conferred by—
section 77 (right to identification as author or director),
section 80 (right to object to derogatory treatment of work), or
section 85 (right to privacy of certain photographs and films),

(b)any infringement after commencement of the right conferred by section 84 (false attribution) is actionable by his personal representatives.

(6) Nothing in these Regulations shall be construed as causing a moral right to be exercisable if, or to the extent that, the right was excluded by virtue of paragraph 23 or 24 of Schedule 1 on the commencement of the 1988 Act or would have been so excluded if copyright had not previously expired.
