Act of false attribution of authorship of altered cinematograph film

  (1)   If the work is a cinematograph film that has been altered by a person other than the maker of the film, it is an act of false attribution in relation to the director, the producer and the screenwriter of the film to deal with a copy of the film as so altered, as being a copy of the unaltered film, if, to the knowledge of the attributor, the copy of the film is not a copy of the unaltered film.

  (2)   Subsection   (1) does not apply if:

  (a)   the effect of the alteration is insubstantial; or

  (b)   the alteration was required by law to be made, or was otherwise necessary to avoid a breach of any law.
