Introduction

During the submission of items a licence can be assigned using the configurable submission system.

The repository can be configured to require the assignment of a default and/or creative commons licence.

Step 1 - Default Licence

Edit the following file and then rebuild DSpace:

nano $HOME/source/dspace/config/default.license

Please note: The license file only obeys "ASCII" characters, you cannot use any sort of markup since it is a legal artifact.

Example custom licence
