The Berne Convention kinda does that (copyright is automatic), and
in most of Europe, authors cannot voluntarily relinquish copyright
so all works only enter into the Public Domain on the 1ˢᵗ January
that follows their 70ᵗʰ anniversary of death.

In contrast to works done by employees of the USA government (who
successfully defended their copyright in a European court, whereas
it’s in the PD in the USA automatically), however, with an explicit
dedication like this DJB has no grounds to sue anyone over it. Yet,
it’s, strictly speaking, code under copyright with no licence, which
kinda violates “Integrate good code from any source with acceptable
licenses.” (, plus, commercial
violation of copyright is a felony in some legislations and possibly
might not need the original author to sue.
