An interesting case review from India where the Delhi High Court decided that where the owner (not being the author) of a copyright work (here a bronze sculpture or mural) treats the work in a manner that is prejudicial to the reputation and honor of the author, the Court may transfer all rights over the work to the author – here granting physical possession of the mural back to the creating artist.
