"Under VARA, moral rights automatically vest in the author of a "work of
visual art." For the purposes of VARA, visual art includes paintings,
drawings, prints, sculptures, and photographs, existing in a single copy
or a limited edition of 200 signed and numbered copies or fewer. In
order to be protected, a photograph must have been taken for exhibition
purposes only. VARA only protects works of "recognized stature;"
posters, maps, globes, motion pictures, electronic publications, and
applied art are among the categories of visual works explicitly excluded
from VARA protection. 

The language of the Copyright Act excludes works-for-hire from the
definition of "works of visual art," thereby excluding such works from
VARA protection. "

originality standards required by copyright law."

(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
