  • {{MIT|Copyright holder}}MIT License. This tag is designed for MIT images licensed by others (usually as part of a software package). Do not use it to tag images you created yourself, since the MIT license is intended to be applied to software, not images. You may wish to use Template:Tl instead, which has a similar intent but is worded more appropriately for images. You also have the option of a share-alike license, such as Template:Tl or Template:Tl.
