 +
 +Creators of copyright have a special right known as “moral rights”, in addition to the rights covered earlier in this topic. Moral rights ensure that:
 +
 +* a creator is credited for their work at all times even if it is sold or assigned;
 +
 +* a creator may take action if their work is falsely attributed (i.e. credited to someone else, or their name is credited incorrectly);​ and
 +
 +* a work is not treated in a manner that is prejudicial to a creator’s honour or reputation.
 +
 +Moral rights can only be owned by individuals (not corporations). A creator will hold their moral rights for the entire duration of copyright; moral rights cannot be transferred to anyone else.
  
 The concepts of moral rights and performers rights are still relatively new in Australia, with the first mention of moral rights being introduced by the //Copyright Amendment (Moral Rights) Act// 2000 (Cth) and additional performers rights being implemented as a result of the //US Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act// 2004 (Cth). These moral rights protect authors, creators and directors - they protect individuals not the copyright owners. These rights operate parallel to the copyright regime and act as inalienable rights. ​ The concepts of moral rights and performers rights are still relatively new in Australia, with the first mention of moral rights being introduced by the //Copyright Amendment (Moral Rights) Act// 2000 (Cth) and additional performers rights being implemented as a result of the //US Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act// 2004 (Cth).
