      The quasi-copyright claim below the picture is inaccurate, misleading, and not in the spirit of transparent government.

      Follow the link under "Additional Information" that says, "United States Government Work." It explains that such official government documents are not copyrighted:


      You can't use an official government document to imply anybody's commercial or political endorsement without their consent.

      But (at least in the US) you CAN reproduce, remix, and redistribute this photograph to your heart's content. Don't believe anybody who tells you otherwise.

      Shouting can not READ, that must be the only reason he spammed this stupidity on each picture.

      I have to ask this most learned flickr member, what part of this disclaimer was "inaccurate, misleading, and not in the spirit of transparent government"?

      If you look to the right of the page you will see, highlighted in blue, United States government work, it takes you right to the same link you provided.

      Shoutingloudly? Read the CAVEATS. I would say the first two caveats could easily make these photos fall under regular US copyright law.

      This little man is so cut and I love his shy looking face.

      There, Belle, see? Read Sarasnee's comment. "Maybe it is copyrighted." That's what I'm afraid of. Copyright creep.

      These pictures are GREAT. The attempt to take a right out of citizens' hands is BOGUS.

      The right to steal photos? I'm not sure what you're getting at there.

      Nice shot; I wonder if the kid will remember that moment when he's older.

      Adoro los niños y en especial los de color. Aquí se discrimina a la gente de color. Me alegro que Uds y su Familia sean morenos. Siga adelante!!!
