Are you a lawyer with expertise in the arcane rules of copyright in
every country? No, then don't think you can pull a 'license' or
'disclaimer' out of your ass that will be worth anything.

People already have done the homework, either use CC0 (or MIT/BSD/ISC
license) or ignore the problem and just say 'public domain' and to
hell with people living in countries with terminally braindead
copyright laws.
