The legal subject of a right is the bearer of the right; the legal object of a right is that property, material or immaterial, in respect of which the legal subject enjoys those privileges accorded him in terms of the right. It is in this latter sense that I have used the word ""object"" in the title of my lecture. Copyright may be defined as that right.
