WTF of the day. Another company claiming "ownership" of public information

I really don't know how some companies exist for so long:

Time-zone database down due to legal problems via reddit.com

I mean, really now. Do they actually think that pre-1991 time-zone information is protected by copyright?

Incredible.

Seems to me that it would not be possible to claim ownership of time changes, because that information was originally decided/created by the local authorities in that zone.
