Which type of license doesn't require attribution? Is there a project on GitHub?
Nearly all Open Source licenses require attributions. Counter-examples include:
- 0BSD, a license that imposes no conditions. Example: Toybox, a minimal Linux userland.
- CC0, though it is technically not a license and has problems when applied to software. Frequently seen for cryptographic reference implementations, though. Example: the blake3 hash function.
- Unlicense, which is an amateur version of the CC0 idea. Not a good license, but comparatively popular.
- Boost license, when compiled into another software. Example: the Boost project.
