Is there any interest in this idea?

Automatically have a little copyright icon added to all your posts with your choice of copyright license.

I’ve seen someone around here manually adding a copyright statement to most of their posts and thought I’d see if others would be into it. It’d be unobtrusive and incorporated into the UI, rather than a piece of text in the post.

Your thoughts?

    Rather than being limited to posts themselves it probably makes more sense to attach it to certain chunks of something. For example a block of code so that people copying the code to use in their own projects after receiving help actually have the license to do so rather than that just being verbal (could make it default to MIT No Attribution or some other license the community specifies). This same logic can be extended to images (although probably with no default for those since theres way too many possible cases)
