#^/dev/lawyer The MIT License, Line by Line
The MIT License is the most popular open-source software license. Hereâ€™s one read of it, line by line.
Read the License
If youâ€™re involved in open-source software and havenâ€™t taken the time to read the license from top to bottomâ€”itâ€™s only 171 wordsâ€”you need to do so now. Especially if licenses arenâ€™t your day-to-day. Make a mental note of anything that seems off or unclear, and keep trucking. Iâ€™ll repeat every word again, in chunks and in order, with context and commentary. But itâ€™s important to have the whole in mind.
