I wouldn't say it's "policy" (i.e. why should an author mandate what a user can or can't copy), but rather content type/disposition or similar. The difference in nomenclature might be subtle, but the former would seem to imply a mandate from the author about what can be done with the content, whereas the second is more along the lines of a qualifier/descriptor of the generated content, and still leaves it up to user agents to decide how to handle it.
