TL DR Popular Open Source Licenses Explained Simply!

MIT License
The MIT License is a short, permissive software license. Basically, you can do whatever you want as long as you include the original copyright and license notice in any copy of the software/source.

GNU GPLv3
The GNU GPLv3 also lets people do almost anything they want with your project, except distributing closed source versions

For non-software like data, photos, videos, artworks. There are six Creative Commons (CC) licenses.

The Open Font License (OFL) is maintained by SIL International. It attempts to be a compromise between the values of the free software and typeface design communities. It is used for almost all open source font projects, including those by Adobe, Google and Mozilla.
