Patent rights are not abandoned under either circumstance: a dedication to
the public domain of the copyright does not apply an abandonment of relevant
(or irrelevant) patent rights.

Most people are much more ignorant about language than they are about
[other subjects], but they reckon that because they can talk and read and
write, their opinions about talking and reading and writing are as well
informed as anybody's. And since I have DNA, I'm entitled to carry on at
length about genetics without bothering to learn anything about it. Not.
