The problem is that in some legislations (including most civil law
countries, i.e. most of Europe) you cannot legally put something in the
public domain.

You can only waive your copyright, and there is more than just
copyright.  You cannot waive your moral rights for example, which
include the right to the integrity of the work and to preserve it for
alternation---interesting concept in open source.  Moral rights are even
perpetual in many jurisdictions.  You need a contract/license that says
that you won't enforce moral rights, for example the CC0 license.

Interesting, there is no local port of CC0.  In my non-lawyer eyes
that's a pity, but there must be a reason for that. :)
