The draft NOSA implies that U.S. government works, though in the public
domain in the U.S., are subject to copyright in other countries.  Is this
really true?  The Berne Convention seems ambiguous on the case; it seems
to me that it doesn't clearly foresee the case of works which are never
in copyright in the country of origin.
