Public Domain Monster

Let’s try something! I made the above image and the intellectual property it represents: a weird turtle-monster thing. I, Evan Dahm, am putting this particular image and this monster thing into the PUBLIC DOMAIN. YOU are free to use it, copy it, claim it as your own, rework it, or do whatever you like with it. I encourage you to do so. I relinquish my ownership of this little turtle monster; it is the internet’s now.

I figure most IP that gets put online gets treated mostly as if it’s in the public domain anyhow, so I am putting this out there in that position explicitly just to see what happens.

More of these to come maybe?
