Like Snopes said, I think the issue would be Trademark and not Copyright. Trademarks persist as long as the image is being used for commercial purposes. (And gov't or not-for-profit qualify as "commercial" in this context.) Many US Gov't agencies have Trademarks on various things. For example, ToxCast™ is Trademarked by the US EPA.
