Slightly off-topic, but it pains me to see that the **AA's brainwashing campaigns are actually working.
Works of the United States Government are, by law, in the public domain. Copyright does not apply to them. This includes software, images, documents, data, whatever - the only exceptions I know of are for classified material (obviously) and logos that are protected from misuse by non-copyright laws. So long as our government resists the urge to incorporate itself, its works will continue to belong to you and me and everyone else.
It is still the most sublime demonstration of how "intellectual property" can be shared and used for the good and advancement of all mankind.
