Include a license dialog so people can choose from a predefined list of licenses as well as put in something themselves. See also a post at the Creative Commons mailing list.

The ultimate solution is some sort of wizard which helps people to define the license they want, in a similar way as Creative Commons does on their website. Finally the selected license get stored into the MuseScore file using a standard, but also the PNG, PDF and more.

I would actually like to write a plugin to do this, however it appears there currently isn't the available plugin objects to do so, with the text object you can only create staff text, and with the score objects you can only edit title, author, subtitle, etc., if they added an object to edit the copyright, then I could write a plugin to generate a creative commons license and post it in the copyright section.

There is such an option in the "Save Online…" dialog—a simple dropdown menu with the names of several different licenses. Does this fulfill the original intent?
