Figure out what license we should use for this project
ykdojo opened this issue · comments
This is my first open source project, so I don't know. MIT? Apache? Or something else?
I like the MIT license, as far as I know, it's the most open one, but I haven't done much research on the subject. There's this resource to compare licenses.
If we want a simple and open licensing scenario then MIT is good. Otherwise, you can go with apache.
Get some legal advice on this. Because you want to be permissive but at the same time you gotta ask yourself if it's ok for someone to take your source and profit off of it. If you don't mind so go for the MIT one.
Okay, I landed on the MIT license for this. Perhaps I should get more legal advice on this at some point. Meanwhile, I think MIT's good for this project.
