This is a continuation of a disturbing new trend we see in the US from 
our President: If you want something, just make a claim the laws don't 
apply to you and take it.  There is a large body of law that shows that 
artwork in a publication is subject to copyright.   This paper does not 
have any affect on that fact. Until is it tested in court in each 
country, it is just an assertion.
