Rights of authors

Copyright Act is a general rule that grants each author’s group or each author of a work, in principle, the same extent of rights (except for exceptions).
Authors have the right to claim for property benefits for the use of their works, as well as the right to the protection of their works under the so-called author’s personal rights (the inviolability of these works, copyright, copyright supervision, etc.).
