What is the difference between copyright and image right ?

Copyright is a right held by authors according to the Literary and Artistic Property Code which stipulates, amongst other things, the conditions governing how works (musical, audiovisual, graphic and plastic arts, software etc…) are used and how the authors are paid for such use.

The right to privacy (Art 9 of the Civil Code) is a personality right according to which anyone can object to his/her image being shown.
