You made a blanket comment that US law does not recognize

"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. "

Thank you for providing a confirming link that US law
does recognize the value of moral rights.
