Normally when we think of the Eighth Commandment we do not contemplate theft of authors' works or stealing their meanings or messages. Drawing from creativity theory as well as the rich Jewish legal tradition, Professor Kwall's talk illustrates why violating an author's moral rights comes within the scope of this Commandment. Her discussion will also touch upon why the Visual Artist's Rights Act provides insufficient protection for moral rights in this country.
