um. does that mean they are in the public domain, or that you retain
copyright? you are giving permission

 a) for others to SELL your files for REAL MONEY
 b) for others to change your files and redistribute under the same name
 c) for others to take your name off the files?

seriously, it'd be better to establish clearly which of these you mean 
(all or any).
