In the sector of economic copyrights the European legislator has made great effort to establish a substantial acquis communautaire. The opposite is, however, true as regards moral rights, which have thus far entirely been left outside the scope of the various harmonization Directives. This chapter identifies the reasons why it has proven too difficult to achieve a European standard of protection for moral rights; argues why, in the digital age more than ever before, retaining such clean dividing line in the harmonization process between moral rights (not harmonized) and economic rights (increasingly harmonized) is no longer sustainable; and explores possible avenues for harmonising moral rights in the EU.
