When I was Technical Editor, the ISSUE was copyrighted by ACM (they told
me), but the individual article copyrights were owned by the authors. The
implication was that any author was free to submit his or her article to
another publication after it appeared in Ada Letters.
I do not know whether the situation might have changed.

Articles in ACM conference proceedings like SIGAda confs are covered
by the following paragraph in the proceedings (I'm looking at SIGAda
'99, which is also AdaLetters XIX, 3):
"Copyright 1999 by ACM. Permission to make digital or hard copies
of portions of this work for personal or classroom use is granted
without fee provided that the copies are not made or distributed
for profit or commercial advantage and that copies bear this notice
and the full citation on the first page."
Each article in the proceedings carries a notice similar to the above.
As far as I know, ordinary AdaLetters articles are not under
copyright. There is no indication of such in a normal AdaLetters
issue or on the individual articles.
