This piece looks at the basis of copyrights and moral rights in relation to academic research. Some critics of open licensing for open access work are concerned about the moral rights of the academic author. But rather than having a strong ethical basis, these moral rights have more of an economic function in that they are designed to allow an author to accumulate a form of capital. Demanding attribution and integrity of work is not necessarily a ?moral? act.
