And (sorry for posting so much) I wanted to post the actual text of  
the public domain confirmation email from CC for reference:

This is a record of a Public Domain Dedication.

On January 25, 2008, me dedicated to the public domain the
work "test." Before making the dedication, me
represented that me owned all copyrights in the
work. By making the dedication, me made an overt act
of relinquishment in perpetuity of all present and future rights under
copyright law, whether vested or contingent, in "test."

me understands that such relinquishment of all rights
includes the relinquishment of all rights to enforce (by lawsuit or
otherwise) those copyrights in the Work.

me recognizes that, once placed in the public domain,
"test" may be freely reproduced, distributed, transmitted, used,
modified, built upon, or otherwise exploited by anyone for any
purpose, commercial or non-commercial, and in any way, including by
methods that have not yet been invented or conceived.
