The MIT license originated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is a simple way of allowing code to be reused even within proprietary software so as long as the license terms and copyright notice are included.
There are no other restrictions on reuse. The notice also includes a liability waiver for the software’s originator.
Feedback on the beta version has been mostly positive thus far. Some have complained of obvious bugs such as the ability to enter null or negative prices. OpenBazaar, however, made it clear from the outset that the beta version is far from fully functional.
