This is the first time I'm handling licenses and could use some guidance in this matter.
I have developed a piece of Java software where parts of the code is derived from different classes licensed with the MIT license but different copyright holders. The plan is to upload it to GitHub as open source software.
What license should I apply to my software? Am I bound to use the MIT License when parts of the code is derived from MIT licensed software?
Below is one of the MIT licenses from where I have derived code.
The MIT License

If I use the MIT license, should I add the names from the copyright in the above license into my new license? I feel I should acknowledge the use of their code in some way, so is having my name + their names in the copyright enough or should I do it in some other way?
