we talk here about the "status" of the software, not what the law allow what the users can do or not.
when example a usa-developer say his software are pd, than are this in every country pd. i dont know any law in any country what change this. a usa-developer can change his mind and say: today i would like use the german law.
when a developer say his software are copyright than are the software under (c) in every country where accept this rights. for this give it contracts between the states.
Retro-Nerd talk here every time about the word "PD" and think wrong. right, the german law-text dont know the word "PD". the but german law know other words for this. that are 90% the same as PD.
and the german judge (thats the possible) accept the status PD and Freeware from other states when he dont damage the german law.
