VOAは現在も著作権フリー?

昔,Voice Of Americaの文章はパブリックドメイン(著作権フリー)だと聞いた覚えがあるのですが,
これは現在でもそうなのでしょうか。
VOAのHPには,著作権について以下のような記述があり,二次利用する際はリクエストが必要,のような気がするのですが・・・

(以下はVOAのHPからの引用です)

VOAは政府機関なので、VOAが自分で作成した著作物はフリードメインになるようです。

でも、すべてのコンテンツを自前で作っているわけではありませんから。他の人が作ったコンテンツには作った人の著作権があります。

お礼

おお、やはりフリードメインなんですね。

自前ではないコンテンツに気をつけて,慎重に使用を検討したいと思います。
ありがとうございます!
