I'm writing an ASP.NET application which is deployed to virtual machines running on Microsoft Azure and customers access using their browser. The virtual machines are under my control and customers only access the service using their browser (they never log on to the virtual machines using RDP and they don't have access to binaries running on the server).
Looking at the MIT licese, it states:
The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
My naïve, I-am-definitively-not-a-layer-interpretation of this is that I don't need to inform my users that I'm using the library, because I'm not shipping any portion of the library to the users. I realize that it may be a nice gesture to the original author to inform users about what open source software I use, but I'm more trying to understand what the hard requirement is.
Am I missing something, or am I correct that attribution is not required?
