I have a contract of employment for a new job, with the following clause.
15.6. You agree to permanently waive all moral rights (if any) conferred by Chapter IV of Part I of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 for any work to which this clause applies.
The part mentioned: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988/48/part/I/chapter/IV
The part referred to (as I understand it) is to do with the right of a creator to be recognised as such, but I'm not sure I fully understand it. Is the clause there so the company can claim to be the creator of any works I create while there?
Note, this contract is for an engineering job. The specific clause in the contract looks to relate more to artistic works which is why I am unsure of its true meaning.
