      Description

      The CC license step has now changed to support other license types. The wording on the step should therefore be changed:

      • the step name should not be CC License
      • the text "If you wish, you may add a Creative Commons License to your item. Creative Commons licenses govern what people who read your work may then do with it." should be re-worded to not specifically mention CC if other licenses are being supported in the pull down
      • CC0 is a CC license so it shouldn't have a separate entry in the pull down from Creative Commons
      • "No Creative Commons License" option should be re-named to "No License"

      On a side issue, are the other license types well known enough to be included in the default distribution? In particular "Sampling" and "Public Domain Mark"?
