 From the Creative Commons website:


"The Public Domain Dedication is not a license. By using it, you do not 
simply carve out exceptions to your copyright; you grant your entire 
copyright to the public without condition. This grant is permanent and 

Therefore we need to change the wording so it doesn't refer to a 'public 
domain liscense".

And we need to say something like:

   1. Each clip art submission is to be declared public domain: 
   2. Each clip art submission will have to use this instant online form 
to make the declaration valid:
