The GPL license is a copyleft license, meaning: "The GPL does not give the
licensee unlimited redistribution rights. The right to redistribute is
granted only if the licensee includes the source code (or a legally-binding
offer to provide the source code), including any modifications made.
Furthermore, the distributed copies, including the modifications, must also
be licensed under the terms of the GPL." (Wikipedia)

The MIT license is non-copyleft, meaning anyone has the rights to use, copy,
modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies provided
they keep the license text with the library.
