Released into public domain
I agree to release my text and image contributions, unless otherwise stated, into the public domain. Please be aware that other contributors might not do the same, so if you want to use pages with my contributions under public domain terms, please check the other contributors' user pages.

I strongly support the use of an explicit Public Domain license on contributions to the microformats wiki, and to microformats in general. This probably doesn't come as a surprise to anyone who followed my work on S5, which (after misguided use of a Creative Commons license, which doesn't work well for software) I explicitly placed into the Public Domain so that anyone could build on it--as many people did, both commercially and freely. Community resources are best encumbered with as few restrictions as possible, and thus using a PD "license" makes the most sense to me.
