These are rights which are exclusive to the original author of a work. They include the right to be identified as the author of the work and the right to object to any denigration or derogatory treatment of the work (to include distortion or mutilation).
Copyright protection for literary works in the UK and Ireland is generally for the lifetime of the author plus 70 years. However, certain copyright works, for example, broadcasts, are only protected for 50 years.
Effect of Brexit on Copyright:
While the UK remains in the EU, UK copyright laws will continue to comply with the EU copyright directives. The continued effect of EU Directives and Regulations in the UK post-Brexit is not yet clear. However, the UK is a member of a number of international copyright treaties and agreements, which will continue to be the case following Brexit.
