  • the copyright of the work has been handed over to the publisher;

Regarding "cases where the author declares that the work will be released under public domain", I understand that in some parts of Europe, this is not an option. The only way the work can enter the public domain is via copyright expiry.

>>Regarding "cases where the author declares that the work will be released under public domain", I understand that in some parts of Europe, this is not an option.

I've included wording in the footnote to indicate it is not universal.
