: Huh? In "Copyright Basics" (Circular 1) from the U.S. Copyright Office (available on their website), there's a section on "Publications Incorporating U.S. Government Works," where it says flatly, "Works by the U.S. Government are not eligible for U.S. copyright protection."
: That seems pretty comprehensive. Can you elaborate on your previous answer?
Dear Bill Handrich,
I gave an unresearhed guess as can be seen by the entry. I recall that there had been some debate some time ago about US copyright eligability (sp?). I thought it had been resolved in favor of the government having the right to copyright.
