Game art into the public domain?

on: October 22, 2009, 06:40:30 pm
I was just wondering if anyone knew of any cases where old game art (8 / 16 bit machines) has now been placed into the public domain? I know that some artists place their non-game work into the public domain, but wondered if this had actually happened for existing games?

Castle of the Winds by Rick Saada. Roguelike available from http://www.exmsft.com/~ricks/

Graphics are shitty, but it's a good example.

LostGarden released some old graphics into public domain too
