One of the requirements for the 2017 competition entry is to detail licence requirements. I don't know much about the different types. When I set up the github account for this project, I was asked to choose a licence. I went with the MIT licence as it gives free use of the code so long as I am quoted as the original creator. Why would this appeal? Do I crave the fame of having this project associated with me? Of course! In reality, knowing who created the code will allow anybody who uses it to easily find my webpage, where I intend to keep the designs and code up to date with the inevitable fixes and improvements. This should help whoever uses handShake to have easy access to the latest and most reliable design and code.
