    Works created by the Federal government aren't subject to copyright.  However, like any other entity, the Federal government can license content (such as photographs) created (and owned) by others, and the use of such content in Federal publications doesn't change its copyright status.  Thus, for example, a newspaper photo or TV-screen capture might appear on a Federal site, but it would still be covered by copyright.
