The 70-plus-page manual ended up in the Library of Congress, thanks to its author, an FBI official who made an unexplainable mistake. This FBI supervisory special agent, who once worked as a unit chief in the FBI\’s counterterrorism division, registered a copyright for the manual in 2010 and deposited a copy with the US Copyright Office, where members of the public can inspect it upon request. What\’s particularly strange about this episode is that government documents cannot be copyrighted.\”A document that has not been released does not even need a copyright,\” says Steven Aftergood, a government secrecy expert at the Federation of American Scientists. \”Who is going to plagiarize from it? Even if you wanted to, you couldn\’t violate the copyright because you don\’t have the document. It isn\’t available.\”
