0810 Software creates open-source-software, to empower the open-source-software developing community we are creating our own open-source-software license. ‘The 0810 Software simple and permissive open source license (rev. 1.0)’ is our first self-created license and we are proud to anounce that you are now free to use it to license your own open-source-software (you will need to change “[licensor]” with your own, company or repository owner’s name!). You can download it here as a pdf:
You can also download it as markdown file, this can be a lot easier on, for example, GitHub:
