In countries other than the US, does the national government retain copyright of works created by its employees?
Does anyone know the status of government created works in other countries?
I’m particularly interested to find if there are non-English documents that could be translated and reproduced in the US without infringing copyrights.In the US, documents produced as part of work by federal employees are precluded from being copyrighted by the government.
Really, I’m not looking for help on US law, so spare me any nuances I might have missed.
