The provisions of the moral rights of the Act also have its application to the architect. This ensures legal right of the architect to receive acknowledgment of their designs original creator in the work. The legal penalties are there if the copyright of the creator is breached and as a author failure of respecting their moral rights (Thadeusz, 2010).
