Thesis (M.A.)--Regent University, 1990
This thesis examines the moral rights clause (six bis) of the Berne Convention in terms of its current effects on the United States common law and the Constitution. It provides an overview of the fundamental principles of law as they relate to copyright law, in order to establish the framework in which the provision falls. Among the laws examined: property, reputation, fair use, quality of work, and destruction/mutilation of authors works
This examination in no way purports to be exhaustive in its coverage of legal principles. Therefore, the principles underlying this thesis have been limited to property, dominion, stewardship, and unalienable rights. The primary constitutional principles explored are enumerated powers, federalism, authors rights, alienability of property, and liberty
The conclusion is that by adhering to the Berne Union, and executing laws persuant to the moral rights provision, the United States will effectively destroy the unalienable right of personal property. (Abstract shortened with permission of author.)
