I want to use some icons on some links in the footer of my website, such as these. They are under the MIT license. These icons are files by themselves, so I cannot just add the MIT license at the top of the files I want to use. I want the source code of the website to be as small as possible.
How exactly do I add the MIT license to these icons? I have spent a surprising amount of time googling without getting a clear answer.
- Is an HTML comment on the line above the icon linking to the license sufficient, or would I have to include the full copy of the license?
- Is a copy of the license or link to that license displayed in an about section of my website a sufficient alternative, saying it refers to these icons? I think that's what this answer is saying.
- Is a copy of the license in the GitHub repo that hosts my project (in the same folder that holds the icons) sufficient, provided I link to the GitHub repo at the bottom of every page of my website?
