    Gerard-
     
    My understanding is that works produced by the US government *are* all 
    copyright protected. However, the copyright is held (surprise) by the 
    employers of the US government, that is, the People. Of the US.
    
    I have no idea if that makes them truly "public domain", or simply free to US 
    citizens. I'd never needed to consider that view until recently, but I make 
    the rash guess that in practice, they are free to all.
    
     And despite NIMA's odd feelings about "civilians", that applies expressly to 
    them as well. (NIMA pretends their latest Bowditch PDF may not be legally 
    recopied, because it has their logo appear in it.)
