Federalist Papers in Arabic

I previously asked Have the Federalist Papers Been Translated to Arabic?. The answer ends up being yes.

The original publisher being Penguin (1961) and the arabic language version is published in Jordan by Dar Al Faris (1996). The question remains open as to who owns the copyright (if the US govt. commissioned the translation it might hold rights to the resulting text). This is important to the question of whether it is possible to get authorization for an on-line edition as the start of a political version of the Baen Free Library. Who knows, maybe Jim Baen would be willing to host it?
