Please add ODbL licence as an option

Hi - as well as the CC data licences, in order to publish database data, I would request Figshare to support the "open database licence" ODbL please. It is an accepted licence under the Open Data Commons, and is famously used by OpenStreetMap. Here's a link to the licence info: https://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/index.html It is particularly important, because there is already at least one project on Figshare which has re-published OpenStreetMap data. Under the terms of the ODbL, the data they've released must be licenced under that same licence. Thanks

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the request. We will investigate this license and potentially add.
