Github prefers the MIT license for its Open Source software

Last Updated on November 29th 2011

A friend passed on this great recent post on how Open Source helps Github, https://github.com/, a social coding (collaborative coding) site: http://tom.preston-werner.com/2011/11/22/open-source-everything.html

Towards the end of the post there is a section on why Github prefers MIT license for its Open Source code.

I think MIT may be a little ‘old hat’ and it may be safer to go ASL (Apache License)/Android route, especially as raviiyer.org stuff could eventually be on Android too.
