When something is actually released into the public domain it is not under
the GPL, CC or any other license and everyone is in fact free to use it for
anything and in any way. From what I've heard the reason Linux et all are
NOT simply released into the public domain is to prevent an "embrace,
extend, and extingush" scenario.
