The former recognized that it was his own composition, but not as he had written it. Strange words took the place of words he had written and the rhythm was distorted. Then the poet went into the blacksmiths store and rearranged all his tools On being questioned by the blacksmith as to why he was acting crazy, the poet stated; “I am doing to your property what you were doing to mine.” He confirmed that poetry was to him, what the property was to the blacksmith.

It establishes three separate but related protections. First, that it is an author’s right to be made known to the public as the creator of the work. If the author so desires, his or her name must appear on all copies as well as advertising and other publicity for the work. Second, that an author can prevent others from usurping his work by naming another person as the author. This allows the author to prevent plagiarism of the work.

Right of integrity empowers the author to prevent distortion, mutilation or other alterations of his work or any other action in relation to the said work which would be prejudicial to his honor and reputation.

Tel: +91 - 40 - 6050 6009 EMAIL info@altacit.com WEBSITE www.altacit.com FACTS AND RULING This case discusses the issue of moral rights in substantial detail. In this the plaintiff is a sculptor that was commissioned by the Government of India to create a bronze mural, and in turn assigned his Copyright in the mural to the Government. The mural was placed on display as a prominent part of the Country’s national heritage, but was later pulled down and dumped. The plaintiff Amar Nath Seghal sued for violation of his rights. This case was filed in the 90’s and an interim injunction was passed in favor of the Plaintiff. The defendants argued that the plaintiff had assigned his copyrights to them and having purchased the same, the defendants could deal with the mural in question in a way they chose to.

Tel: +91 - 40 - 6050 6009 EMAIL info@altacit.com WEBSITE www.altacit.com In 2005, the Court dismissed the case and observed that the moral rights are independent of the author’s copyright. They exist even after the assignment of the copyright, wholly or partially. It can be inferred from the present case that the Court was of the view that once a work is assigned and displayed in a prominent place, a removal from such place in a disrespectful manner that mutilates the work is a violation of one’s moral right.

Tel: +91 - 40 - 6050 6009 EMAIL info@altacit.com WEBSITE www.altacit.com COMMENTS I hold an opinion in variance to what has been held. The decision also spoke of protection of cultural heritage of the country which could be found in the mural. The authority of rights stemming from the case seems slightly problematic as the judges also bring in the unrelated irrelevant cultural heritage aspect to justify the right of display. I fail to understand how this attributes to form a moral right as it is unfair to compel someone to display your work under the guise of moral right, which actually amounts to coercion.

It is also pertinent to note that the concept of moral rights is restricted by Visual Artists Rights Act (VARA) of 1990 and the Copyright Act to Visual Artists only. Thus the scope of moral rights in America is far more restricted.

Enforcement of moral rights depends on educating the public. When it comes to moral rights, a new law without credibility in the public mind would be profoundly disappointing. Spreading awareness about the copyright issues among the legal fraternity would surely go a long way in providing proper and adequate recognition to the moral rights of creators.
