Apparently, images and other auxiliary content can be licensed with typical software licenses such as MIT.

Let's assume the following:

  • I have a repository with different kinds of files
  • I want to allow free use of some content (such as code, "graphical" images)
  • I want to disallow free use of some other content (such as textual content inside HTML, photographs of myself)

How would I license this repository in practice? Do I attach a standard LICENSE file and then explain in the README how I wish the LICENSE to be interpreted? Or do I create my own LICENSE file? Neither of these options seem very clean.
