Apart from the United States' Constitution, which applies to a single
country, you might wish to look at the UN Universal Declaration of Human
Rights as well, specifically Article 27[udhr27]:

(1)    Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life
of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific
advancement and its benefits.

(2)    Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and
material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic
production of which he is the author.
