That's also my understanding of public domain.
So I don't understand the questions about merging it with other licenses or re-releasing it under a different name. Of course you can! It belongs to the public.

Under German Law, it's not possible to give up ownership rights - at least that's what the majority of lawyers will tell you, not all of them agree on that one.
I didn't know that. I really would like to understand the reasons behind such a stupid law...
