How about this one (from 

"I, the creator of this work, hereby release it into the public domain. 
This applies worldwide.

"In case this is not legally possible:

"I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any 
conditions, unless such conditions are required by law."

I'd rather use this than attempt to draw up my own.
