MIT license is:

	Do whatever you want with this. You can even branch proprietary
software are you are not forced to contribute back neither to me nor to the
community. Just keep my name in the source code.

GPL license is:

	You may use this software for anything you like, but I'm forcing you
to keep any derived work under the same kind of freedom. You may make profit
by using or selling this software (or derivates), but if you give a binary
to anyone, you must offer them the source code too.
