Let me just emphasize part of Nathan's response:

If you don't want to use the web-integration directions (or simply send
users to http://creativecommons.org/license/?jurisdiction=my (Malaysia
hasn't launched yet, so the jurisdiction parameter has no effect, but it
will immediately when the ported licenses are launched)), you must use
the API if you're building an official CC site (and I encourage people
building other websites and apps to use the API as well).
Although it would seem simple, it is all too easy to produce a buggy
license chooser that gives people the wrong licenses, and it is nearly
impossible to assure that you're giving people up to date licenses with
an independent implementation.
