Anyone may choose a Creative Commons license by going to

Several services are available to integrate license selection into a website or application:

Allows any website or application to transparently integrate CC licensing. Used by CcPublisher.

Requires programming.

Website Popup

Allows a website to give users a choice of any current CC license, generally via a popup. Javascript may be used to save license choice result in local form value -- may be integrated to any existing form on your site.

Requires some knowledge of HTML and Javascript.

Drop-down menu

Include a list of available licenses in a drop down menu on your form. List may be included via javascript, server-side retrieval, or by simply copying and saving directly into your form. The last method will not obtain new license versions, but is by far the simplest, and licenses should version rarely and old versions are always still valid.

Requires minimal knowledge of HTML.
