Does that also prevent the U.S. government from claiming copyright
protection (as a civil party) on their work in other jurisdictions?
"This title" seems to refer to situations where the copyright
protection would be granted by U.S. law.

Henning Makholm       "It was intended to compile from some approximation to
                 the M-notation, but the M-notation was never fully defined,
                because representing LISP functions by LISP lists became the
 dominant programming language when the interpreter later became available."
