What kind of Web Site with a" Public Domain"?

An expert here told me the material of a site with "public Domain" is open to anybody to use and republish?

Thanks?

A Public Domain is not a specific thing or an object.

Something which is in the "Public Domain" is availble to the public for no charge and anyone is free to distribute or publish the author's work.

In other words saying something is in the "Public Domain" is another way of saying that it is copyright free and is freely distributable.  Sometimes the author may request that a header remains intact or that a acknowledgement remains.

The "Public Domain" is not physical and most certainly does not have a routes in the web.  It was used alot by up and coming programers who wanted to distribute what they had writtenwithout the restrictions of copyright in order for their programs to be noticed and for a large software house to spot them.
