CC0 is a protocol that enables people to WAIVE any rights associated with a work so it has no copyright or neighboring rights restrictions attached to it.

CC0 improves and extends the current CC public domain dedication. Key additions:

  1. A protocol facilitating the conveyance of norms with a waiver statement.
  2. "Universal" rather than U.S.-centric.

A beta version of the protocol, including the traditional components of the CC architecture -- legalcode, human-readable explanation, machine-readable metadata, and tools, has been launched for public discussion on January 15, 2008.
