with reference to copyright law, and in particular the SGAE, what is the acceptable translation of "pequeño derecho" (amd "gran derecho")?
"Minor/major rights?
Giles Bickford
Minor rights / Major rights
Explanation:
You are "right" :-)
See the following reference where they are clearly explained:

"Notions of major rights and minor rights which apply to distinct and fundamental matters are extremely important. They should be very clearly understood as all are administered differently.

Major rights

Moral and patrimonial rights both fall under the heading of major rights. Moral rights, however, and one component of patrimonial rights, namely the exclusive property right, are preeminent. Thus, they give the author an inalienable status and insure his private, personal and monetary rights are respected even if he/she has entrusted the administration of his/her repertoire to an administration entity or an agent.

In other words, the author is always involved, at least partially, in the management of major rights.


Minor rights

Minor rights highlight the author's right to remuneration resulting from patrimonial rights. Generally managed by an administration entity to which the author has given all or part of his repertoire.

In other words, the author does not take part in the management of minor rights".

I'd suggest to visit the page, where they are explained by area (i.e.: theatre, literature, music, etc.)

Good luck!

Thank you very much. That is excellent.
I tried to find a reference, but could only come up with pages in Spanish where Google's translation was "little straight"!! How did you get to the link you gave me?
