Full License Text

MiiTY License Version 1.0

0. Definitions.

"This License" refers to MiiTY Version 1.0
"The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.

1. No modification or distribution.

This licensing period begins when the license text included with the program is dated.
The licensing period for No modification or distribution is 90 (ninety) days. This means that you are not permitted to modify the source code or distribute it to others WITHOUT the permission of the program's creator.
At the end of this licensing period, Section two becomes effective.

2. Free use, modification and distribution.

At the end of Section one's licensing period, you are hereby granted permission to "do whatever you want" with the code. This includes, but is not limited to, modification, distributing verbatim copes of the source code, distributing modified copies of the source code. While doing this, you must adhere to the conditions of Section three.

3. Further conditions.

The only further conditions of this license is that all modified or verbatim copies of the Program's source code must be licensed under a MiiTY-friendly license (which are available at and that when licensed under MiiTY, the following is in the "license.txt":

"This program is licensed under MiiTY Version 1.0. You're free to do what you want with the source of this program IF 90 (ninety) days have passed from [insert licensing date]. Please see for the full license text"

4. Clarifications.

I'm not a lawyer, nor have I ever been taught law. This license probably (definitely) has major flaws and loopholes. Please use your common sense when licensing programs under this license.

I consider it ethical to edit the licensing date on each major version release. For example, when the first version of your program is released, the licensing date could be 20/11/13. When the next version is released, you could update the licensing date to 29/11/13.
