Neither CircleMUD nor VieMud are "public domain".  Works in the public
domain do not have an associated copyright and may be used in any manner
you see fit.  CircleMUD is copyrighted, licensed software, and always has
been.  Similarly, VieMud is copyrighted, and -- as per default according
to international law -- all the rights to it are reserved to the authors
(that is, they don't need to state, "Copyright blah, blah, blah.  All
rights reserved," to make it copyrighted with all rights reserved).
Nothing is in the public domain unless the author specifically states it
is, and, even there, there may be other considerations and stipulations
that effect whether the statement is binding.  I'm not a lawyer.

Write your own code.  You'll find it infinitely more fascinating.
