I disagree with Gardiner here. The problem is more targeted at the software that is FORKED from free software under MIT.

@joeligj12 Just because a license isn't as strictly copyleft as the GPL is doesn't make it any less "free". It's an approved license by the OSI and acknowledged by the FSF as seen on "This is a lax, permissive non-copyleft free software license, compatible with the GNU GPL." I could argue over whether you think MIT is free or not, but I've made my statements, and I will not pursue this further since it's not productive.

@marquiskurt I am not one of those kind of people, you proved me wrong, thanks

@joeligj12 Well, my apologies on making the assumption, then. 😅 I'm glad we're on the same page. I personally use MPLv2 as my license of choice.
