“…If I were to release a piece of software under the MIT License, and then give you a copy, you would be free to modify, sell, and build upon my creation so long as you leave the notice that I was the source of the original work in your adaptation. Licenses like the MIT License and Creative Commons licenses enable me to hold credit for my work while still giving my consumers some freedoms.”

Winslow Dalpe, Why Go Open Source?
