I registered on http://stackapps.com 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.

@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
