I gotta admit I don't know. (But hey, I do mostly family law...)

Mr. Ross' statement is generally correct, of course, but whether there's an
implied intention to allow re-dissemination of a press release is a VERY
interesting question. (I know you can *explicitly* allow redistribution of
a work.) I don't have time to look it up right now. Maybe next century. :)
