      Description

      When uploading an attachment, you have options to choose a license type, but if you don't know what each license means it can be a guess to choose the appropriate one.

      This will be a simple change to display the URL link of each license so the user can read further about them.

      I've attached a picture of where this would occur (just to the right of the 'Choose license' text)
