I don't have an experience starting an open source project but some people I know refer to this site choosealicense.com to guide them in choosing a license for their projects.
Oh, yesterday i landed in that page, and i can't remember how! but definitely it was super helpful! (specially the 'Bring your lawyer' part, in 'I don’t want to choose a license.')
Thanks for your reply!
