Well, read it.  Especially read the fallback permissive licence, 
that being the main point.  It's really pretty much a classic of that
form, _and_ (unlike WTFPL and Unlicense) extremely well drafted.

Commenters on license-review disliked CC0 going out of its way to state
that there are _no_ patent rights conveyed, instead of the approach
taken by most permissive licences of eschewing comment on that subject,
but that misfeature doesn't make it proprietary.
