Imam Khomeini guidelines on author wages, publishing and copy rights

According to Imam Khomeini, the Islamic system is authorized to devise laws which determine the wage of authors and define copy rights with observing all requirements and circumstances.

Imam Khomeini through a historic decree once said that the Islamic government has the right to constitute special laws and regulations regarding publishing and copyrights.

At the same time,  the relevant authorities are permitted to set special laws for the protection of copy or publishing rights in accordance with the expediency and circumstances.

Imam however warned against such a situation which could restrict access to books and works or monopolize the publishing.

Imam himself wrote dozens of works on various Islamic disciplines including philosophy, mysticism, jurisprudence and Quranic and Hadith Sciences.

Imam Khomeini became a Marja in 1963, following the death of Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Hossein Borujerdi.

Imam has left several works on jurisprudence, Hadith, Quranic interpretation, philosophy and mysticism
