Hi,
I think the legal status of the source and the target are distinct
issues, as they are separate documents.

If legal status specifically addresses usage rights,  then it not
entirely clear that we need to address legal annotation of the source
beyond best practice, since there are existing solutions, e.g.  creative
commons.

One issue that is relevant however, is the legal status of the binding
between the source and the target, essentially the translation memory.
So one might be happy to publish source and target documents, but may
want to put different restrictions on the use of the TM/bi-text
representing by the sentence level binding between the two.

Regards,
Dave
