Authors Rights

Authors rights is a set of rules governing principles, moral and economic rights that the law grants authors for the creation of a literary, artistic or scientific work both published and unpublished.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights issued by the UN, in its article 27 provides that: everyone has the right to protect their moral and material interests resulting from any reproduction scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is an author.

The concept of Author's Rights which includes the estate of copyright expires with the death of the author. The work or works are then passed into the public domain, which implies that they can be used freely while respecting moral rights, ie. acknowledges that the work is an expression of the author's person.

The Author's Rights and Copyrights are two different conceptions of literary and artistic property, but the concepts are based on the same idea, both are aimed at protecting the assets and rights of the author.
