If you are new to the issue, a good starting point is the Digital Curation Centre's guide, How to License Research Data.Though written from a UK perspective, the guide will help you understand why licensing data is important and warn you of potential pitfalls. It also covers how to apply a licence to your research data, and which licence would be most suitable. ANDS also has licensing information.
