Note: author's rights are not /natural/ rights but rights developed and

Though I think you already asked this question, just to clarify your
point: are you comparing cultural works with material properties? Also,
if we achieve to change the commercial rights term & scope, would you
consider those rights -when applied to works created *after* such legal
change (very important: I'm not talking about current works, Reinier,
but future, post-change works)- as /property/ rights?
