released into public domain by its author

Jump to: navigation, search

The author of this work has asserted that it is released into the public domain.

Some authors claim to release their work into the public domain. It is unclear if this has any significance in US law, and it seems that it has none in terms of the laws of the European Union.[1] However, this can be understood as a perpetual grant on the part of the author of the right to reproduce his/her document.

Because of its unclear legal status, Camera-wiki discourages the use of this tag; whenever you have the right to do so, please license the document under Creative Commons.
