I found a useful class in a project that is licensed under Apache 2.0. Can I copy it to a project licensed under MIT license? Add the library as dependency is not an option.

Ideally the answer should quote the corresponding paragraph of the license (MIT and/or Apache 2.0) that describe this case.

    @TimMalone IMHO it is not a duplicate cause i want to add to a MIT licensed project

  • From the possible dupe: "licenced under Apache v2 and I want to use MIT..." and "If you copy AL-licensed source code verbatim, you should keep that license on that source code." Isn't that what you want to do..?

  • Yes you are right, thats what i want to do. So I can copy the specific class, keep the license header of Apache v2 and the rest of the code base can remain MIT?

  • That's my understanding, yes.
