No, the term of protection of a work is not affected by the fact that the owner has copied the work to another medium. If, in addition, new information is added, the new information if copyrightable could have its own term of protection.
See FAQ Section 2.
Other limitations include provisions for allowing compulsory licenses, use and copying by libraries, the sale of the work by the owner See FAQ Section 1. A fair use of a copyrighted work may include the practice of any of the exclusive rights provided by copyright, for example, reproduction for purposes such as criticism comment, news reporting, teaching including multiple copies for classroom usescholarship, or research.
Rather it identifies four factors that should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis in order to determine if a specific use is "fair". These factors, which should be considered together when determining fair use, are: Purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes; Nature of the copyrighted work; Amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and Effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The distinction between "fair use" and infringement can be unclear and is not easily defined. There is no right number of words, lines or notes that qualify as a fair use.
Government use the fair use exception? Yes, the "fair use" exception applies to the U. See FAQ Section 5. Public domain refers to works that are not protected by copyright and are publicly available.

A work may enter the public domain because the term of copyright protection has expired see FAQ Section 2.
Government work and there is no other statutory basis for the Government to restrict its access see FAQ Section 3. A work is not in the public domain simply because it does not have a copyright notice. Additionally, the fact that a privately created work is, with permission, included in a U.
Government work does not place the private work into the public domain. The user is responsible for determining whether a work is in the public domain.

Many Government agencies follow the practice of providing notice for material that is copyrighted and not for those that are in the public domain.

No, these terms are not synonymous and should not be used interchangeably. Public release, disclosure and dissemination describe the availability of a work. Publicly released, disclosed or disseminated information may be owned and protected by copyright, and therefore, not be in the public domain.
Copyright ownership may be held by any person or institution. Typically, the author of a work owns the copyright in the work. However, under the U. Copyright Law, for a work made for hire, that is a work prepared by an employee within the scope of employment or a specially ordered or commissioned work, the employer or other person for whom the work was prepared is considered the author.
No effective transfer of copyright can be made in the U. Government works see FAQ Section 3. If you want to contact the copyright owner regarding use of a copyrighted work, the best place to start is with the work itself.
Copyright notices in published works identify the owner at the time the work was published.
However, copyright ownership may have changed since publication. The copyright notice and any permissions are often printed on the back of the title page in books. Most owners will be apparent, particularly for relatively current works.
However, identifying the specific owner may be more difficult for journal articles, gray literature and older works. Affiliation of the author may suggest ownership or may help to locate the individual author, but is not in itself definitive.
