work without the name of the author are called anonymous work, and work with pseudonyms as the authors names are called pseudonymous work.
Unlike named works, which have their rights protected 50 years after death, anonymous and pseudonymous work only have their rights protected for 50 years after it has been released.
When the rights of these works are violated, the owner of these works can use their real name to claim compensation for those violations.
(1) The publisher of an anonymous or pseudonymous work may file the claim referred to in Article112, Article 115, or Article 116, paragraph (1) or may claim damages or the return of the benefit of any unjust enrichment in that person's own name, on behalf of the author or the owner of the copyright to the work; provided, however, that this does not apply if the pseudonym is the name by which the author is commonly known or if the true name of the author has been registered as referred to in Article 75, paragraph (1).
(2)A person whose true name or the pseudonym by which the person is commonly known is indicated in thecustomary manner on copies of an anonymous or pseudonymous work as the name of the publisher of the work, is presumed to be the publisher of that work.
