Here is a comment from SQLite 3 source code:
** The author disclaims copyright to this source code. In place of

** May you do good and not evil.
** May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others.
** May you share freely, never taking more than you give.

expr.c from OpenBSD uses just
/* Public Domain */

pdksh has file LEGAL with this:
pdksh is provided AS IS, with NO WARRANTY, either expressed or implied.

The vast majority of the code that makes pdksh is in the public domain.
