Thanks Nathan(s): that's the point. In my case, the referrer was a local 
HTML document.

By the way, I should have imagined that: today I discussed the issue 
here at the NEXA Center with Davide Bardone, and we noticed that no 
argument was passed to the commons deed page, so we supposed that the 
check had to involve the referrer... Hence, we had all the elements to 
understand why in our case the deed was not showing up as we expected.

So, my issue is solved and, if you want, you can just keep the implicit 
suggestion of my email, that is providing also the code for the "+ 
Commercial Licence" logo, as an output of the chooser, e.g.:
Creative Commons License 
<http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/it/> + 

Thanks again and best regards,
