Web Integration/FileUploadExample

The main idea of this feature is to allow users to set a license for an individual file that they are uploading. This is done during the actual upload and can be either mandatory or optional (assuming All Rights Reserved by default).

Also, it can be combined with a Default License Choice to allow a user to change the license on specific uploads while having a default Creative Commons license.

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.
