One addition to this way of handling license choice:

We also have licenses that are approved only for reference purposes. Those should never be selected for things that a submitter holds copyright on, but may need to be necessary for materials that we want to provide for reference.

So there should be a list at the bottom of the reference licenses, introduced by something like:

"The following licenses are applicable for reference materials only. Reference materials cannot be maintained and are not part of the SELF educational materials. They do not count for reputation on the platform and are not included in exported courses."

to make sure this is not a desirable choice.

Bipin, please see if you need any more clarifications from Georg. See if you can implement this within a week.

[ NOTE: Connected to https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?23097 ]

We want a separate page that allows people to change the licence for their material, which they should ideally only do if they do not have the Copyright and cannot relicense under GFDL.

Please make the text of this page:

"Select Licence

Multiple licenses comply with SELF's Free Educational Material Definition. You are strongly encouraged to follow the default policy and choose the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) for all materials that you hold the Copyright on. This allows maximal recombination between different SELF materials, as well as SELF and other sources of knowledge, Wikipedia included. The FAQ explains the background for this request.

If you don't want to follow this recommendation, or if the material you are submitting cannot be relicensed by you, please select the appropriate license from the list below.

[List of licenses from http://selfproject.eu/EM-Licenses. Please include all the versions (as things may be under older licenses) and make sure to include the links for people to find the licenses easily. My first suggestion would be to do this as a list with checkboxes, with GNU FDL selected by default. Maybe this could also be done in a way where selection of a license automatically returns to the main page, which should then reflect the changed license in the text it displays, see https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?23097]

If you cannot find the license you were looking for, please consult this list of SELF approved licenses whether the license has already undergone assessment. In case you cannot find the license, please follow the instructions on the license list page in order to get your license assessed and potentially included in this page."

In this text, there should be several links:

Suggestions on how to improve the understandability or readability of the text are very welcome.
