If both explicit & implied rights are the same and the permissions mentioned in the ISC are also found in MIT, including to sub-license it.
Would there be a problem with adding a commit in a fork that simply adds the extra parts to make it MIT while leaving the copyright header alone? (It would also keep in the permissions granted alongside the copyright notice to not violate the apparent terms) Or would you have to have both in the COPYING.md file without having a single license
- In effect I want to migrate code from a project I found that is essentially 'dead' from ISC to MIT after forking it, none of the code was originally committed by me and I don't know the original authors either.
Attempting to have Licensing As:
✅ . MIT text as Body but Keeping The Original Copyright Header with old name & date (instead of my own)

❌. changed away from the original ISC:

My apologies in advance if this isn't formatted in an ideal way, this is the first time I've attempted to ask a question on here 😅
