“Moral Rights: The Future of Copyright Law?"
Sponsor
Frederick K. Cox International Law Center - Case Abroad at Home Lecture
Co-sponsored by
Center for Law, Technology & the Arts
AUG 20, 2009
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom

This lecture will introduce the concept of the moral rights of the author, a special branch of copyright law dealing with the artistic, personal, and cultural interests implicated in copyright works. The session will seek to familiarize authors with the approach to moral rights in the United States and major international jurisdictions, including the European Union and United Kingdom, Canada, and India. Moral rights are an area of growing international importance, and there is a strong probability that moral rights claims and concerns will become increasingly common in an era of expanding digital technology. This seminar will help lawyers to identify moral rights issues in their practices, and to present effective arguments on moral rights claims, based on national and international copyright laws.
Speaker Information
Mira Sundara-Rajan DPhil.Mira T. Sundara Rajan, DPhil (Oxon)
Canada Research Chair in Intellectual Property Law
Associate Professor of Law
University of British Columbia


Mira T. Sundara Rajan has been based in Vancouver since 2004. Her training in law, economics, and politics was acquired at leading Canadian and French universities, and she read for her DPhil specializing in Copyright Law at the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre of St Peter’s College (2003). Professor Sundara Rajan has published a book on copyright and law reform - Copyright and Creative Freedom: A Study of Post-Socialist Law Reform (Routledge 2006) - and she has been invited to edit a developing Oxford University Press Series - Intellectual Property: Eastern Europe and the CIS (2008-). She has a special interest in the non-commercial aspects of authors’ rights in their work, known as “moral rights,” and her work has helped to pioneer recognition for them in diverse jurisdictions. It has influenced a seminal Indian case establishing the responsibility of the Indian government for protecting works of culture in its care, Amar Nath Sehgal v Union of India (Delhi High Court, 2005), and affected the treatment of totem poles on public display in the West Coast city of Duncan, for which she wrote a “Totem Policy” in 2008. Prof. Sundara Rajan has also had a unique opportunity to explore the legal issues surrounding the digitization of museum collections with Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum. Mira is currently at work on a new book, Moral Rights and New Technology, to be published by Oxford University Press in 2010.
