US data.gov published a policy statement on the site.  Copyright statement was not needed because government data once released for sharing is public domain.

I wonder if it would be appropriate to also stipulate that the
copyright status and terms and conditions of re-use should be made
explicit - so that it is clear what can (and/or can't) be done with
the material?
