Creative Commons Public Domain Tool – Public Domain Mark 1.0

Creative Commons announces the release of the Public Domain Mark, a tool that enables works free of known copyright restrictions to be labeled in a way that clearly communicates that status to the public, and allows the works to be easily discovered over the Internet.

Public Domain Mark 1.0 for marking works already free of copyright complements the other Creative Commons Public Domain Tool, Public Domain Dedication CC0 1.0 Universal, which enables authors to relinquish their rights prior to the expiration of copyright.
