Legal question

Hi,I'm working on TicTacToe (a simple game) and I would change my old makefile to a one of raylib template, that is licensed under the zlib license. The problem is that I don't understand how to modify the makefile for my purposes and apply the license.
The question is: my project is under the MIT license, while makefile of raylib template is under the zlib. If I want to modify this makefile, what should I modify? Something like this?

# TicTacToe Makefile # # This is a modified version of makefile template of raylib repository. The original version is licensed # under the unmodified zlib/libpng license. #************************************************************************************************** # # raylib - Advance Game # # makefile to compile advance game for desktop platforms, Raspberry Pi and HTML5 (emscripten) # # Copyright (c) 2014 Ramon Santamaria (Ray San - # # This software is provided "as-is", without any express or implied warranty.

Should I insert my copyright notice? Can I change license?


  • I've a solution: I insert my license (with my copyright), after I insert "For the snippet ... taken from ..., the following license also applies:" with the zlib license (and Ray San's copyright).
    It is right?
  • Hi LelixSuper! zlib/libpng license is a very permissive license with not many clauses, you can just add the new license below.
  • Ok, really thanks!
