Have UploadWizard automatically add structured data for licenses
Open, LowPublic

Description

Except in cases where someone chooses a custom license (which is rare), UploadWizard should automatically create a structured data claim about the license of the work. For example, if I choose a CC0 license for an image that I'm uploading with UploadWizard, it should automatically create a claim like:

copyright license (d:P275): CC0 (d:Q6938433)

This will allow users to search for images by license more easily (like this).

FYI, there's already a bot on Commons that is doing this for existing images, so having it happen automatically in UploadWizard shouldn't be controversial.

I'm certain we discussed this but weren't sure if we wanted to get into it. In any case, not a high priority at the moment (especially given the aforementioned bot may be serving the need sufficiently) - but something we could explore at some point.
