Author and ownership rights

Author and ownership rights

As a general rule, if you have created a copyright work, you have certain rights to how that work is used. Rights granted to authors fall into two categories; economic rights and moral rights. Economic rights give the copyright owner the opportunity to make commercial gain from their work and to claim compensation against anyone infringing them. Moral rights include the right to be identified as the author as well as object to derogatory treatment of your work.
