The USG can assert and hold copyright to software outside the US under 17 USC § 105 and a contractor can also transfer software copyrights to the TVA should it be required under contract. That doesn't mean that the copyright automatically evaporates under 17 USC § 105. I've been told that agencies have asserted international rights in the past.
This is interesting and contradicts what I just wrote, regarding
