Licensing Question

Hello, I read through the University of Illinois/NCSA Open Source License the MIT license, and related webpages. I don't understand it. I am attempting to make a commercial game in C++ that uses the libc++ Standard Library. I don't intend on ever releasing the source code. What am I required to do to use the library?

Thank you,
Mackenzie Moore

When in doubt, please consult with your lawyer.


You won’t get legally defensible advice from a mailing list, and this isn’t legal advice either. However, we do have:

Which will give you an idea of what the license is about.

The *intention* of the license is to allow you to use libc++ and compiler_rt with no restrictions or obligations. Similarly, the intention of the LLVM/UIUC license is to not require releasing your code either.
