Can or other sites sell my thesis?

Can or other sites sell my thesis?

Answer:  It depends. If you are a US government employee, YES, they may reformat it and sell it as long as they credit you as the author.  

If you are a non-US federal government employee, probably NO, but IT DEPENDS on your contractual agreement with your employer/agency.  Check with your legal counsel and they can issue a cease-and-desist if it is not appropriate.
