Moral rights are a collection of rights that allow an author to have control over preserving the integrity of their work and artistic personality. These moral rights are more than just a mere economic interest, but an “inalienable, natural right and an extension of the artist’s personality.” Signatories to the Berne Convention, the Visual Arts Rights Act, and several states as well as several countries agree on the statement that moral rights are rights to protect the integrity of the work.
