This was an ongoing problem in the software world.  To make matters easier
for software developers, the industry coalesced around a set of licenses.
There are the MIT licenses at http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT.  The GNU
licenses are popular and can be read at
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html.    (01)

A good place to start is the Creative Commons site.  Their goal is to help
individuals asking this exact question.  See  http://creativecommons.org/
and select a license.    (02)

Best wishes    (03)
