A couple of the gems that I'm using in my rails backend are MIT licensed and I do want to go commercial with this app - that being said the MIT license requires that I include the copyright and license with any distributions correct? So do I have to package the copyright and license with my mobile app or just somewhere in my backend (seems pointless since noone will see the code)?? If so, what's the correct way to do this?
Are there any legal differences between a backend (SaaS) app that a front-end communicates with VS. a redistributed package?
What if the license was GPL on a gem? Must I then disclose my entire backend source?
To be clear, my goal here is to keep my code private given the nature of my application.
