The [U.S.] law is based on prior cases and/or changing interpretation,
so nothing can be 100% clear. However, Creative Commons, O'Reilly, and
other folks seem to know a sufficiently good solution. For example,

	http://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain/

but, again, this solution has probably never been tested in courts,
and even it has been, it does not guarantee you anything. The same is
true for any license, of course.
