This directory contains the licence which applies to all material in the LumoSQL project.

MIT Licence

The MIT Licence applies to all files in this project. The MIT licence is the most-widely used Open Source licence, including by some of the world's largest companies. The MIT licence grants everyone the right to use the code for any purpose under copyright law. Every file should have a copyright statement at the top and also a Software Package Data Exchange machine-readable header, but even if it doesn't, the MIT licence still applies. It also applies to any file which is not clearly code, such as configuration or input data.

The LumoSQL Documentation is also generally covered by this MIT licence. There are documentation-specific licences and we will adopt one of them if the MIT licence ever becomes a problem.

To even further avoid potential misunderstanding, we maintain the site license.lumosql.org with the full text of the MIT Licence.
