The German Wikipedia has used CC0 to dedicate data (PND-BEACON files) into the public domain.

Overview

The German Wikipedia used CC0 to dedicate data into the public domain; specifically, their PND-BEACON files are available for download. Since Wikipedia links out to quite a number of external resources, and since a lot of articles link to the same external resources, PND-BEACON files are the German Wikipedia’s way of organizing the various data. “In short a BEACON file contains a 1-to-1 (or 1-to-n) mapping from identifiers to links. Each link consists of at least an URL with optionally a link title and additional information such as the number of resources that are available behind a link.” Learn more from the English description of the project.

License Usage

The PND-BEACON files are available for download under the CC0 public domain dedication.
