Although federal law had not acknowledged moral rights before this act, some state legislatures and judicial decisions created limited moral-rights protection.
The Berne Convention required the protection of these rights by signatory states, and it was in response that the U. Congress passed the VARA. VARA exclusively grants authors of works that fall under the protection of the Act the following rights.
Additionally, authors of works of "recognized stature" may prohibit intentional or grossly negligent destruction of a work. Exceptions to VARA require a waiver from the author in writing. To date, "recognized stature" has managed to elude a precise definition. VARA allows authors to waive their rights, something generally not permitted in France and many European countries whose laws were the originators of the moral rights of artists concept.
In most instances, the rights granted under VARA persist for the life of the author or the last surviving author, for creators of joint works. VARA provides its protection only to paintings , drawings , prints , sculptures , still photographic images produced for exhibition only, and existing in single copies or in limited editions of or fewer copies, signed and numbered by the artist. The requirements for protection do not implicate aesthetic taste or value.
VARA's application is limited to visual works that fall within a narrowly defined category.

But suddenly one painter raised his hand and said that I will make a very beautiful portrait of you which you will surely like. The king became happy hearing that and other painters got curious. The king gave him the permission and the painter started drawing the portrait. He then filled the drawing with paints. Finally, after taking a long time, he said that the portrait was ready! But when the painter presented the portrait, everyone in the court, including the king, left stunned.
The painter made a portrait in which the king was sitting on the horse, on the one-leg side, holding his bow and aiming the arrow with his one eye closed. The King gave him a great reward. Moral: We should always think positive of others and ignore their deficiencies. We should learn to focus on the good things instead of trying to hide weaknesses.
If we think and approach positively even in a negative situation, then we will be able to solve our problems more efficiently. December 5, at am. December 6, at pm.
