Bug Description

Inkscape 0.48+devel r12387

In "Document properties" -> "License" tab. If I select "Public Domain" the URI is set. If I visit this page I reach a "retired legal tool" from Creative Commons.

After following a couple of pages back and forth my best bet is to replace the old link with the following and replace the name "Public Domain" with "CC0 Public domain Dedication".

Related links: (blog entry with some details behind the change from Oct 2010). (More information about CC0) (CC0 Public domain Dedication) (Public Domain Mark, only used for that "[...] has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.")
