Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Can the government use photos of me on their websites? (wikipedia.org)

Andurin writes: Hey photo folks: I'm pretty clear on my rights and responsibilities as a photographer, but I was wondering about non-civilian (or even non-person actors) and publicity rights. I know that most commercial ventures would require an image release before using my likeness for their website. But what about the government? If a federally-employed photographer takes my picture in a public space, can they post it to their agency's site? Or to a government Flickr account, or Facebook even?
