What is this? Isn’t it a license for open source software?

As I opined in my initial post, it’s a license for software, not illustrations.
I don’t think an MIT license pertains to illustrations?

I think you’re right. I missed that part :blush:
What’s the common license for free illustration then?

Creative Commons?
But there are varying levels of CC. Look it up and specifically state the rights you are releasing.
A lot of times we won’t use CC artwork because many of the licenses state that usage requires the new art to be CC as well. My clients really aren’t into sharing their branding or other creative output, not to mention the legal tangle of also having RF or RM imagery in the new art.

I guess the illustrator should had included CC license https://undraw.co/license but then she clearly stated on that page that there’s no need to include attribution.
Then again, is there ‘No Attribution’ type in CC license?

Look it up.

The illustrator of Undraw, Katherina Limpitsouni, confirmed in her tweet :smiley:

I have also seen fonts that carry a MIT license, since they are considered a software, and there are SVG fonts, so I see how SVG can be considered a software as well.

Everything digital is code. That doesn’t make it software.
But whatever. A non-standard license on imagery is a good way to keep your work from being used by corporate entities with lawyers on staff.

^ This. There is no way I could propose this unorthodox licensing situ without losing my job and/or my client.
