I registered on few days ago. I have written several applications that I want to place on this site. But I have a question -- how can I license my applications?

This post contains all the information necessary to place your application here. If you check suggested template, you'll find a dedicated section for license information.
You don't need to do anything else regarding license, except specifying it.

Yes I have check this post but I want to know how to get License ??? for example MIT License – ViTo Brothers Apr 25 '11 at 8:56
@ViTo How to get license text? You can try wikipedia (MIT) or just google it. – Nikita Rybak Apr 25 '11 at 8:57
Ok If I get licence text and put it into my application ... It means that nobody else or redistribute it ??? am I write ??? – ViTo Brothers Apr 25 '11 at 8:59
@ViTo If license says something's not allowed, then nobody will be able (legally) to do that. – Nikita Rybak Apr 25 '11 at 9:01
Ok it mean I simply passed licence text in my application and nobody can redistribute or change code of application !!! Thanks !!! – ViTo Brothers Apr 25 '11 at 9:03
@ViTo Note, that MIT license actually do allow redistribution (and a lot of other things) If you don't want anybody to change your code, it might be easier to just not release it. – Nikita Rybak Apr 25 '11 at 9:05
"just not release it" not release code you mean ? – ViTo Brothers Apr 25 '11 at 9:08
@ViTo Yes. You can post an application, but not release its code. This app has closed sources, for example. – Nikita Rybak Apr 25 '11 at 9:10
