County names[edit]

I am adding the independent cities (Anchorage, Alaska, Baltimore, Maryland, Carson City, Nevada, St. Louis, Missouri, and the 39 in Virginia) on the Alphabetical List of U.S. county name etymologies as I go. Dralwik 01:00, 13 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I'm now finished adding them. Dralwik 18:26, 16 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Homer Litzenberg[edit]

You asked on Talk:Homer Litzenberg if it would be a violation of copyright to post the list of medals verbatim from [1], as I had done in Ray Davis (soldier). I poked around usmc.mil and found the following disclaimer on this subsite on Camp Lejeune:

The U.S. Government retains a nonexclusive, royalty-free license to publish or reproduce the documents within this site. These documents may be freely distributed and used for noncommercial, scientific and educational purposes. Commercial use of the documents available from this site are protected under the U.S. and Foreign Copyright Laws.

This disclaimer allows reproduction without permission of the materials included on that website, as long as the endeavor is not for profit. I think it is reasonably safe to assume that the disclaimer extends to all of usmc.mil (I was unable to find anything to the contrary) and probably most, if not all, of the sites run by the federal government (see Template:PD-USGov).

You've made some useful edits under your username; you might want to try putting up a small userpage at User:Sivamo. Cheers. Ground 15:52, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Additionally, Feist v. Rural seems to protect the copying of simple lists, at least in the United States. Ground 16:54, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)
