mit license

The MIT License is a special type of license used when someone is giving you permission to use something they created, like code they wrote or a picture they drew. It is like a permission slip that tells you that you can do certain things as long as you follow some rules. For example, if you get code with an MIT License, it means you can use that code however you want, but you must include a copy of the license with any copies you make and make sure the person who created the code still gets credit.
