This Article will review the doctrine of moral right, which acknowledges a continuing relationship between an author and his work, in Europe and the United States law that has been applied in similar fact situations. It will then assess both the California and New York statutes that grant rights similar to those of moral right, but only to visual and graphic artworks. Finally, it will analyze the recent New York statute and compare it with both the California legislation and the European doctrine.
