Ext JS Tag Library
James Carr in Making extJS More Accessible to Java Developers:
With my recent interest in extjs, I was playing with the idea of making a Struts2/WebWork component library or a tag library to handle a lot of the boilerplate extjs code (i.e. creating layouts and such) but, luckily, discovered someone beat me to the punch!
I can definitely see how Ajax-with-IDE-code-completion would appeal to many developers. However, I do have to agree with James:
ExtTLD is published under GPL 3.0 license however restricts use by companies participating in animal abuse, such as animal testing laboratories etc.
"restricts use by companies participating in animal abuse, such as animal testing laboratories etc."
Or indeed any form of commercial activity involving animals what so ever.
"You agree you are not involved in or profit from the use of animals for entertainment such as circuses, hunts, rodeos and races etc."
I wonder if a company that offers whale watching trips is included in this?

On the question of whether the additional restrictions are valid, there are 3 different questions you can look at:
In the case of extTLD, I my non-lawyer opinion is:
So, legally, I would say their ethical criteria wouldn't stand up in court. But morally, we all understand what that author's wishes are. They aren't ripping off anyone else's code, or violating anyone else's license, so the best idea is to stick to the terms they ask. If you don't like them, don't use the code. (I suspect I won't be).
