Section 2.5 Public Domain

Stating that your work is in the public domain basically means you relinquish all the rights you receive via your automatic copyright. So it is a very different situation from using copyright to provide an open license. Creative Commons uses CC0, “No Rights Reserved” to indicate this choice.
