While I believe that's true in much (all?) of Europe, this
is an area where US and European laws say different things
about Intellectual Property.  In the US it's quite clear
that morality and law are unrelated ... ;-)

Speaking of which, I've always wondered exactly what those
European "moral rights" of authors (etc) are.  Could someone
give me a URL for a good summary?
