When I released my artwork on July 6, 2006 into the public domain, I assumed that this automatically implies that copies and derivations of it can also not be copyrighted. I just learned recently that this is not the case. Since this was not intended by my original declaration, I did modify my declaration and the disclaimer in all detail pages of my artwork that became property of the general public. I am not a lawyer, so I assume that this refinement of my declaration will be okay. I also assume that this updated declaration cannot apply to events that happened between July 6, 2006 and today, August 24, 2008. With this change did also the logo change. Instead of the strikethrough “c” logo is not the flipped “c” logo displayed with the license. What now follows is the old and new disclaimer to illustrate what changed.
