Web Integration/DefaultLicenseExample

The main idea of this feature is to allow users to say that all content which they upload to a site is licensed under a specific license. This can be combined with Single File Upload Choice to enable users to have a default license for all media, but on special occasions have the ability to change specific files.

The CC Javascript Widget called LicenseChooser.js provides a lightweight method for integrating this license selection into web applications. The widget is used by TypePad and WpLicense provides the functionality for WordPress.

Below is what flickr does to enable this feature for their users:
