"It is perhaps worth making it clear that counsel for the Foundation did not argue that clause 2(b) was not engaged because destruction of the artistic work would be an infringement of Banksy's moral rights, and in particular his integrity right, in it."

I think the internet vernacular I am looking for here is: WTF?!

Moral rights are a subspecies of copyright, but not quite copyright.

A better irony is that moral rights include the right to be identified as the author. Not sure where Banksy sits on that.

Precisely. Nevertheless he must have associated to his works in someway to have earned money from them. And yet he remains anonymous enough to evade capture from the authorities.

His ID is known for the last few years now.

It may be known, but is it asserted?

No it is not, unless internet rumour constitutes direct evidence these days.

No. But again, that an author doesn't assert his moral rights doesn't affect his ownership of the copyright; it merely means that he doesn't have the right to be identified as the author of the work.
