I created a project with the following structure:

license

The question is:

  1. Do I have the right to the BUNDLE where I do not want clients to resell the BUNDLE they have bought?
  2. Is it sufficient to include the license of the modules / libraries in a file such as thirdPartiesNotices.txt as VS Code does?

    So what does the license text tell you? Have you read it? Your question shows no reflection of that at all. What makes you think you may, what makes you doubt it? – planetmaker Sep 5 at 12:23
  • Thanks for the respon @planetmaker! I still confused about the concept of licensing. Almost libraries that I'm use is under MIT licenses. MIT: if I use the code, I must place the license on my project. So, indirectly, will my BUNDLE be MIT licensed (so that my clients can resell the BUNDLE) ? – Enji Kusnadi Sep 5 at 13:07

    A license is a simple concept: it tells you on which conditions you may use and distribute the piece of software. In your case: the MIT license doesn't say what you quote. (A license is not a copyright notice and vice versa) – planetmaker Sep 5 at 13:12
  • Yet with FLOSS licenses you nearly never make anything wrong, if you use the same license as the projects you use(d) – planetmaker Sep 5 at 13:14
  • What license for BUNDLE fits these conditions: only clients with direct permission from me can use BUNDLE, and also prevent it from reselling / redistributing it? @planetmaker – Enji Kusnadi Sep 5 at 14:08

  1. Do I have the right to the BUNDLE where I do not want clients to resell the BUNDLE they have bought?

Yes, you have that right, but you will need to get a lawyer to draft a closed-source license for you. The restriction to disallow reselling is not something that an open-source license can offer.

The MIT license of the libraries you use is compatible with closed-source licenses, so that isn't a hindrance.

  1. Is it sufficient to include the license of the modules / libraries in a file such as thirdPartiesNotices.txt as VS Code does?

Yes, that is sufficient.
