'Moral Rights in the Digital Environment: “Authors” Absence from Authors’ Rights Debate'
This paper examines the arguments put forward in the debate on protecting moral rights in the digital environment. In identifying the themes occupying the debate, it seeks to highlight and illustrate the issues overlooked therein. Specifically it points out how the 'authors' perspective' has remained significantly absent, underrepresented or ignored in the debate. The paper then goes on to address the desirability of including authors' perspective to the debate in giving credibility to the arguments already put forward and generating newer themes to take the debate a step further and the importance and applicability of socio-legal approach in achieving the same.
