in Geneva]

500px is a service for photographers to share pictures, create
portfolios, etc. The service also have a paid-for account which gives
you access to the 500px Store.

The Store has some terms of its own, including:
“you hereby irrevocably waive all moral rights in your Store Images;”

So I have some questions:
* to which extent this kind of clause is legal in most countries
which have signed the Berne convention
* what is the rationale for the service to ask the user to give up
on their moral rights? Wouldn't it be perfectly possible to run
their service without this clause?

This might be widespread, but it is the first service involving sharing
pictures where I read such a waiver.
