Chapter IVU.K. Moral Rights

SupplementaryU.K.

86 Duration of rights.U.K.

(1)The rights conferred by section 77 (right to be identified as author or director), section 80 (right to object to derogatory treatment of work) and section 85 (right to privacy of certain photographs and films) continue to subsist so long as copyright subsists in the work.

(2)The right conferred by section 84 (false attribution) continues to subsist until 20 years after a person’s death.

87 Consent and waiver of rights.U.K.

(1)It is not an infringement of any of the rights conferred by this Chapter to do any act to which the person entitled to the right has consented.

(2)Any of those rights may be waived by instrument in writing signed by the person giving up the right.

(3)A waiver—

(a)may relate to a specific work, to works of a specified description or to works generally, and may relate to existing or future works, and

(b)may be conditional or unconditional and may be expressed to be subject to revocation;

and if made in favour of the owner or prospective owner of the copyright in the work or works to which it relates, it shall be presumed to extend to his licensees and successors in title unless a contrary intention is expressed.

(4)Nothing in this Chapter shall be construed as excluding the operation of the general law of contract or estoppel in relation to an informal waiver or other transaction in relation to any of the rights mentioned in subsection (1).

88 Application of provisions to joint works.U.K.

(1)The right conferred by section 77 (right to be identified as author or director) is, in the case of a work of joint authorship, a right of each joint author to be identified as a joint author and must be asserted in accordance with section 78 by each joint author in relation to himself.

(2)The right conferred by section 80 (right to object to derogatory treatment of work) is, in the case of a work of joint authorship, a right of each joint author and his right is satisfied if he consents to the treatment in question.

(3)A waiver under section 87 of those rights by one joint author does not affect the rights of the other joint authors.

(4)The right conferred by section 84 (false attribution) is infringed, in the circumstances mentioned in that section—

(a)by any false statement as to the authorship of a work of joint authorship, and

(b)by the false attribution of joint authorship in relation to a work of sole authorship;

and such a false attribution infringes the right of every person to whom authorship of any description is, whether rightly or wrongly, attributed.

(5)The above provisions also apply (with any necessary adaptations) in relation to a film which was, or is alleged to have been, jointly directed, as they apply to a work which is, or is alleged to be, a work of joint authorship.

A film is “jointly directed” if it is made by the collaboration of two or more directors and the contribution of each director is not distinct from that of the other director or directors.

(6)The right conferred by section 85 (right to privacy of certain photographs and films) is, in the case of a work made in pursuance of a joint commission, a right of each person who commissioned the making of the work, so that—

(a)the right of each is satisfied if he consents to the act in question, and

(b)a waiver under section 87 by one of them does not affect the rights of the others.

89 Application of provisions to parts of works.U.K.

(1)The rights conferred by section 77 (right to be identified as author or director) and section 85 (right to privacy of certain photographs and films) apply in relation to the whole or any substantial part of a work.
