Creative Commons (CC) and Creative Commons Licensing: Public Domain & CC0

CC0 as close to releasing your content into the Public Domain as you can get, until content is no longer protected by Copyright Law.

Public Domain materials have no copyrights - but you still need to attribute or cite source and author as part of your obligation to allow others to re-search for and find the content you saw - to confirm or dispute your commentary or use.

Public Domain Tools (Not Licenses): Granted versus Marked

How the CC licenses affect works in the public domain

Summary/Warning: In cases where works with mixed licenses are blended, each partial work and the appropriate license information must be clearly marked, so people do not mistake a Public Domain Work as being under Copyright or the Creative Commons License applied to the whole work.
