[ivory-search id=”8947″ title=”Custom Search Form”] Can employees assign their right of first publication (Art. 9 para. 2 CopA) to their employer?

No, the right to decide whether, when, how and under what author’s designation a work is published for the first time (right of first publication) pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 CopA is the moral right of the author and cannot be assigned. However, employees can allow the employer to exercise their right of first publication.
