Moral rights not breached in a broken bridge

The current issue of WIPO Magazine reports of a recent copyright case in Spain in which an Architect whose design of a bridge was altered by another architect took legal action against the Bilbao City council claiming infringement of his moral rights to the integrity of his work.

The report indicates that despite the court finding that indeed the bridge had been altered, the public service provided by the bridge in enabling the citizens of Bilbao to cross the river, prevented the architect from exercising his moral rights.
