In Australian law it would be called Moral Rights IF the work were 
really by that person. But in this case, the work was generated by 
the program rather than the named writer. I don't think there is a 
law against wrongful attribution, is there?

It's certainly an interesting twist!

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
