I agree; these rights are recognized to some degree
about everywhere that honors Berne.  Of course the US
is significant example of a juristiction not honoring
this part of Berne.  I wasn't meaning to pick on
France, but I was completely certain what I was saying
was true for France.  Whereas I believe is it also
true in Germany and most of the EU, I am not sure
which juristictions allow these rights to waived.  I
know for certain that France takes the hard line on
the issue, so that makes the best example.
