Yes, when a user selects 'custom' the user is then prompted to enter 
their name, contact info, and whatever license information they choose. 
We encourage either a link to a proper license or the inclusion of the 
actual license text. Whatever is entered is added as a plain text file 
to the Tranche upload (license.txt), meaning that the Tranche hash 
reflects the exact choice of custom licensing versus CC0.
