Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Article 15.1(b) and 15.1(c) of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, interpreted in the context of the rest of the article, as well as the whole Covenant. Article 15.1(c) is most commonly referred to as ‘authors’ rights’. The Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights states that the rights recognized by Article 15.1(c) are different from intellectual property rights, which are temporary, and can be revoked, licensed or assigned. Finally, the chapter analyzes the practical application and thus the importance of Article 15.1(c) in actually safeguarding the material and moral interests of persons responsible for scientific, literary or artistic production.

Keywords: cultural rights; human rights; intellectual property rights; right to benefit; scientific production
