The Author's Moral Rights-3

Copy-chan, I’m thinking about making a remix of the school song, what do you think?
Are you allowed to change songs that already exist?
It’s the school that I go to. Surely i can edit it freely.
Really?
Just like Copy-chan said, There rights that prohibit people from editing works. These rights are called the right to integrity.

The right to integrity is a right included in the author’s moral rights that allows for the author to stop any changes made to their work that defies what they want done to the work. However, changes that leave no shape of of the work that they were, and changes made to computer programs to make it more effective do not violate the right to integrity.
Article 20 (1) The author of a work has the right to preservethe integrity of that work and its title, and is not to be made to suffer any alteration, cut, or other modification thereto that is contrary to the author's intention.
(2) The provisions of the preceding paragraph do not apply to the following modifications:
(i) the alteration of a written character or word, or any othermodification that is found to be unavoidable from theperspective of school education purposes, when a work is exploited pursuant to the provisions of Article 33, paragraph(1) (including when these apply mutatis mutandis pursuant toparagraph (4) of the same Article), Article 33-2, paragraph(1), or Article 34, paragraph (1);
(ii) the modification of an architectural work by means of extension, rebuilding, repair, or remodeling;
(iii) a modification that is necessary for a work of computerprogramming that otherwise cannot be used on a particular computer to be compatible with that computer, or for a workof computer programming to be used more effectively on a computer;
(iv) a modification other than ones set forth in the preceding three items, which is found to be unavoidable in light of thenature of the work and the purpose and circumstances of its exploitation.
