If it works in your legal system that's good, but this license
is probably useless (for authors) in Poland, because:

a) Public domain is legally non-defined and by most
barely grasped / vague concept.

(Most people who could use your software would stick to safer
licensed works, which have clearer legal status.)

b)You cannot as a author legally binding disclaim copyright.

Cession of author's economic rights to another person is of course
possible, however complete waiver of them is different case..
