"Do not resell or redistribute the icons, even for free." But they gave them the MIT License, which explicitly allows those things...



You're right, this didn't make any sense. I updated the README accordingly. Sorry for the confusion!


You also have a little typo in README, under License: "Attribution IN much appreciated", instead of IS


Thanks a lot, next this will fix this one too!


Great work, and I will probably be using your icons on my app. Is there a Paypal 'donate' button (that I cannot find)?



Thanks to the person who added this as an issue on the repo. I was going to do it, but it was already done.


Yeah, I think they'd be better served by something like `CC BY-ND 4.0`.


This is just bizarre. Picking “MIT” because it sounds cool?

I cannot understand how the authors think this is valid.


The author actually picked the Apache license but changed it to MIT a year ago[1].

I imagine the author is trying to do open source well by using a license but doesn't fully understand the impact it has on the project. That's fair enough, and very common when people are new to open source.
