Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-175) Distribute sample files from www.ferc.gov for unit tests
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 07:37:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13734522#comment-13734522

Emmanuel Bourg commented on LEGAL-175:
--------------------------------------

"Copyright laws differ internationally. While a U.S. government work is not protectable under
U.S. copyright laws, the work may be protected under the copyright laws of other jurisdictions
when used in these jurisdictions. The U.S. government may assert copyright outside of the
United States for U.S. government works."

That doesn't look good for the rest of the world.
