Right of repentance

It is the right to withdraw the work from the market for serious moral reasons (art. 142-143 of Italian Copyright Law), which include ethical, intellectual, political and religious reasons, and also in the cases in which the work is in conflicting with the changed personality of the author.

This right also applies in relation to particular versions of the work and in the case of derivative works, that is of works derived from the original.

The creator of the work shall still have the obligation to reimburse the costs incurred by those who have purchased the rights of reproduction, communication or performance of the work.
