The Australian Copyright Act (1968-1991) (herein called the Act) substantially fails to protect and recognize the ‘moral rights’ of authors to an extent that is likely a breach of Australia’s obligations under the Berne Convention. This dilatoriness is emphasized when one considers the extent of protection now granted in the United Kingdom and the United States by statute and case law. This article will argue that moral rights should be more satisfactorily protected to ensure our compliance with the Berne Convention and for utilitarian reasons.
