English term or phrase: right of authorship vs. copyright
In a licence agreement, a company requires a subcontractor to waive all "rights of authorship and copyrights" to the licensor.

question a): what is the difference between the two?
question b): wasn't one of them directly linked to the natural person (copyright, I thought) and impossible to waive to anyone?

Any enlightment would be very much appreciated.
