how to say “public domain” in Hebrew

נַחֲלַת הַכְּלָל

Hebrew has two words for estate – אחוזה
, coming from the root א.ח.ז
meaning stronghold, and נחלה
of the root נ.ח.ל
meaning inheritance (also wadi).

אחוזה always refers to a physical estate, sometimes to a mansion.

נחלה, on the other hand, can also refer to estate in the abstract sense – domain, if you will.

Thus נחלת הכלל
means the public domain – literally, the estate of the general (public).

For example:

התמונות שאני מעלה הן נחלת הכלל.

The pictures I upload are public domain.
