Skull & Crossbones (and dots!)

Skull & Crossbones (and dots!)

Oh yeah… the license…

Normally I say something like “consider it cc:by” because an Attribution license works just fine by me… but this time, I used a piece of art that was released into the Public Domain (see skull and crossbones large and the legal page for that site.)

OK, so if one piece of this total artwork is in the Public Domain, how do I license the whole piece? Can I use an Attribution license? Should I, or do I need to release it into the Public Domain? Do I use CC0? Now I need to read the CC0 FAQ

For all the work Creative Commons has done to make licensing easier, I still think there’s a long way to go…

(Also, if you have a pile of money lying around, consider donating it to them.)
