Adam cited the Sharism statement:

> "The person who associated a work with this deed has dedicated the work to the public domain by waiving all of his or her rights to the work worldwide under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights, to the extent allowed by law.
> "You can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission. "

but I'd be interested to know what legal status such a statement would actually have. Smita, what legal status does such a statement have and how might it be interpreted in different jurisdictions and legal systems?
