Public domain icon

I, the creator of this work, hereby release it into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In case this is not legally possible, I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.
Notice to creator or uploader: Please consider using {{CC0-self}} instead for your work.
"Releasing work to public domain" has some issues, as it is not well defined in some jurisdictions and/or it is not actually possible to "release to public domain". Using CC0 license achieves the intended effect while avoiding such problems and is well suited for media files.

This template should only be used on file pages.
