just make LICENSE.md and put your desired license in there

MrVoo

@ch1ck3n How do licenses work? Do you just say they exist, write them down, and boom, no copying allowed? Or is there some like registration or whatever

ch1ck3n

@MrVoo no registration required, if there is a piece of legal text on a project, the owner has the right to take down or sue or whatever to people who copied it without attribution

MrVoo
