The MIT License is the most popular open-source software
license. Here’s one read of it, line by line.
Read the License
If you’re involved in open-source software and haven’t taken the time
to read the license from top to bottom—it’s only 171 words—you need
to do so now. Especially if licenses aren’t your day-to-day. Make a
mental note of anything that seems off or unclear, and keep trucking.
I’ll repeat every word again, in chunks and in order, with context
and commentary. But it’s important to have the whole in mind.
