The problem with this is that if you don't specify a license, the default in copyright law is that no one is allowed to do anything with your work without explicit permission from you (other than reading the HTML version on the web site, as publishing it like that is considered an implicit permission to read it).

You can always use a public domain or CC0 license if you don't want to impose any conditions on anyone.
