Remedies for an infringement of moral rights are found in s 195AZA of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth). Once a creator has been successful in their claim about an infringement of a moral right, a court can grant remedy, including:

  • damages in the form of financial compensation
  • an order for a public apology for the infringement
  • an injunction, which effectively prevents or stops a particular type of activity
  • a declaration that a moral right of the creator has been infringed by a particular person
  • an order that any false attribution of authorship or derogatory treatment of the work be removed and/or reversed.
