I used a open source software to build an application about few months back. The license on the software states,
"XXXYYY is Free Software, licensed under the MIT license - so it's free to use for all purposes."
MIT license says that - http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT
Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software."
All this happened few months back.
I visited the software's site now and it says that the software has been updated & is under Creative Commons license and that I need to pay a price to use it in my application.
My application still uses the older version of the software with the MIT license. What should I do? Should I license the software?
I agree that I must pay the developer who created the software, but the only reason I chose this software over other alternatives was that it is totally open source & customizable + free.
