In France, an author has different types of rights to his work.
The two main ones are heritage and moral rights.
Heritage law concerns, as the name suggests, the authorship of the work. It is this right that an author can, for example, give away when he establishes a publishing contract with a publishing house. It allows all or part of the rights to operate a work "as it stands" to be sold in exchange for remuneration.
The moral right cannot be ceded. It gives the author the right to review and validate any changes that might be made to his work. This right is acquired for life regardless of the assignments of heritage rights that he may have been able to sign elsewhere and is transmitted to his rightful holders automatically after his death. It is this right that guarantees an author respect for the integrity of his work.
