Man many thanks... I've missed the "definitions" chapter, damn "Transfer

So I think that GPLed soft if fully qualified PD program in
Wass. Agreement. 
Very good news.

The paragraph about public domain:

GTN "In the public domain"
GSN  This means "technology" or "software" which has been made available
      without restrictions upon its further dissemination.
      N.B. Copyright restrictions do not remove "technology" or
      "software" from being "in the public domain".
