Psst, to keep something — say an interrogation manual — secret, don’t copyright it

A top-secret interrogation manual — some call it a torture guide — that the ACLU has been fighting to bring to light, was actually already made public —  presumably by mistake  — by the FBI agent who helped create it. The agent apparently decided it would be a good idea to copyright the 70-page how-to document. That process requires providing a copy of the document to the copyright office which is where it was discovered by a Mother Jones reporter.
