Moral rights and structures ... episode 2

Santiago Calatrava has reportedly lost his claim against the City of Bilbao alleging it had infringed his moral rights in the "Calatrava Bridge" by alterations and extensions ...

 Patry reports here; IPKat reports here; links to the background from here.

According to the report in Patry, Mr Calatrava's counsel announced an appeal immediately.

It would seem that, if there had not been a public interest in pedestrians actually using the extension, there would have been an infringement.

Perhaps, subject to the appeal, an undertandable outcome (from anything but a natural rights perspective), but I do wonder how that would play out under our reasonableness defence.
