The specification of droit moral in Asian countries cannot be encapsulated uniformly
in a clear-cut way, as the individual countries present certain dissimilarities in this respect.
It is, however, possible to attempt to establish groups showing the general mechanisms
governing the development of moral rights in this part of the world. A presentation
of the copyright regulations of Asia gains importance if we concentrate on
the currently progressing globalisation of intellectual property rights (Jena, 2005: p. 7;
Swadźba, 2006: p. 33–39) and the convergence of the Asian countries’ economies (Freeman,
2003: p. 158–159). This analysis will be carried out based on the laws of countries
such as: Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, Vietnam, India,
Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan.
