Copyright and publisher copyright policies

AUTHOR'S MORAL RIGHTS

  • They are non-transferable. They protect the author's relationship with the work
  • They guarantee that the work will always be signed by the author's name or pseudonym (unless they decide to remain anonymous)

AUTHOR'S ECONOMIC RIGHTS

  • The economic copyrights allow for the management of the work in the so-called fields of exploitation. These are ways of using the work that the author can sell or grant a license on them. The economic rights are hereditary, can be traded and sometimes belong to our employer.

FAIR USE

  • Copyright law allows you to use an already distributed work for your personal use without asking for permission or paying remuneration.
