I'm confused as to what this license really means.
Say I have a large piece of software I plan on selling and keeping closed source. It makes use of several small resources that are under the MIT license.
Do I just have to copy paste each MIT license with their names in it into the source code? That seems pointless since it will remain closed source.
If the software is distributed by a service like Google Play which only takes a .apk file there's no way to distribute the license with the software, if that's what you're supposed to do.
So in this case would using those small resources licensed under MIT not be allowed? Or what?
Also, in the license text, what does "substantial portions of the Software" mean? Which software? The software that is licensed under MIT? Or any other new software using this MIT licensed software?
I'm quite confused as you can tell, so it would be nice if someone could clarify some of this for me.
EDIT: Additionally, how would someone be able to tell what parts of the code were licensed under MIT? If they are able to tell that somehow, how would they be able to tell which person made that specific portion?
