....I voted it down. Here's the reasoning. You're right in terms of how things are SUPPOSED to be according to the delusions many people still hold on to.
However, in REALITY, you are wrong and its wrong to propagate delusions.
The FACT is, right or wrong, for better or worse, the government is a corporation and, therefore in law does have copyright.
Again, should it be that way? Of course not. But it IS that way. And one has to deal with REALITY if one ever wants to affect change to that reality.
