At a talk a couple years ago by Lawrence Lessig (who is a lawyer), I
believe he noted some problems with putting things in the public
domain.  The piece of it I remember probably applies to code and not
to art: that you can't enforce license terms, such as people agreeing
not to sue you if it doesn't work.

I bring this up somewhat pedantically: the public domain is not as
simple as it is sometimes made out to be.


BTW, nice logo.
