[License-discuss] License Questions

I'm currently working on an Open Source project.  I've done several Open 
Source programs in the past and I've always made them Public Domain.  But 
this project is a little more "serious" (for lack of a better word) than 
my previous Open Source projects/programs and I thought I might upgrade 
the license.

After looking over the available licenses, GNU GPLv3 looks to be the best 
fit for me.

Newbie questions ...

I assume these already-available licenses are "umbrella" licenses and I 
can put my project under that license?

If so, do I still need to go through the review process?
