Default Licensing

Has anyone thought of what the license for the FactorDB data should be? I don't see one posted, and a search of this forum (for "license") came up empty. It seems like a perfect candidate for CC0.

Publicly shared math data (like what a factor is of a particular number) are things not licensable (AFAIN).
Facts can't be copyrighted.

Some jurisdictions (notably the EU) do have database rights that exist independently of copyright. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database_right
