In this video, we will discuss and learn about Working with GitHub License.
GitHub is a software development platform for hosting and managing open-source projects. It is a web-based hosting service that provides version control, issue tracking, wiki collaboration and other features.
The GitHub license is a copyright license for the GitHub platform, which allows users to share their code with others in return for public attribution. There are three types of licenses: public, commercial, and academic.
Public: This is the most common type of license. It allows anyone to use your code for anything they want as long as it is not for commercial purposes.
Commercial: This license allows you to sell your software or services with your code. This can be used by companies or individuals who want to make money off of their work that they created using someone else's codebase.
Academic: This type of license is only available for university research purposes and must be approved by an institution’s copyright committee before it can be used in any way by other organizations or individuals.
Git has three main components: the Git core, the Git user interface and the Git repository. The Git core is an open source project that provides an implementation of a distributed revision control system. The Git user interface consists of tools for interacting with repositories, viewing commits and comparing branches. The repository consists of all files in your project, including configuration files and build scripts, as well as all history from previous versions of your project stored in branches.
There are a number of rules that can be applied to determine whether a license is considered open source or not.
A common rule is that the license must allow the software to be shared with others. This means that if you use the software in your own project, you must also make it available to others who want to use your project as well.
Another common rule is that the license should allow for commercial use of the software. This allows companies to sell their products and services using open source software.
The benefits of using the Github license for your work are as follows:
- Use of it is free for everyone
- You can be sure that your work will be available to everyone who needs it
- It is easy to modify and adapt the work you have put out there
- It offers a larger audience for your work
