David Shankbone Creative Commons Licenses Are Now Public Domain[edit]

Hi all - I've been moving all my photography licenses—to the extent they don't violate respective laws and personality rights—out of the Creative Commons license structure and into the public domain. The most significant shift is that anyone can profit off my work and no need to give me credit. This license shift is evident on my Flickr, including photos from the Rolling Stones' last concert (which was amazing - can't believe a guy like Mick Jagger exists) to Lenny Kravitz in Montreal. Anyone has 'license' to change my Creative Commons licenses into the Public Domain. David Shankbone (talk) 07:20, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I made a license conversion request at Commons:Village_pump#David_Shankbone_converts_license_to_public_domain. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:30, 15 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Lane! Man, it's been a minute since I saw you! Happy New Year! Would love to hear what you're up to - DM me on my e-mail, I don't come here much anymore. Would be nice to catch up. I'll state my intentions on the thread in your link. David Shankbone (talk) 08:48, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry - when I just checked it looks like the discussion was removed. Looking to change the license of my photos to the free-ist license possible. Anyone can edit, anyone can use it for whatever purpose be it commercial or non-profit, and I do not need the credit. I thought that is "Public Domain" but I haven't kept up with the evolution of copyright options since I stopped contributing 10 years ago. David Shankbone (talk) 08:53, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Discussion was archived (without result?) here. I believe the best approach would be to keep the old CC licenses (non-revocable anyway) but add a new one reflecting you PD intention. It's all a bit complicated here but we have to be on the safe side so re-users may always have trace back the original license.--Denniss (talk) 10:58, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks Deniss. I just want my photos to be as free and unfettered as legally possible. If there is something I need to do to give permission to blanketly give permission to add such a license, on top of the old CC licenses, to my photographs that qualify, let me know.
