This tag does not indicate the copyright status of the attached work. A normal copyright tag is still required. The Memory of Modern Egypt Digital Archive's FAQ page states that:

"Publication rights are reserved to the authorities contributing to this project, which gave the Bibliotheca Alexandrina the right to display this material only through the [project's] website for public benefit. However, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina does not have the right to authorize the publication of this material. For this reason, you cannot download or publish any of the material available on the website."

Regardless of the above statement, works which have fallen into the public domain in the United States and in Egypt (or in their source country in the case of non-Egyptian works) may still be hosted on Commons, and claims to the contrary constitute copyfraud. The status of each individual work should be determined separately, usually through the death date of its author and/or its publication date. See Commons:Licensing#Egypt for more information.
