ExtTLD, for developing components on the open source Ext JS framework, has been released under a license apparently suited only to vegans, vegetarians and animal rights activists.
Among the terms, ExtTLD cannot be used in connection with the development and manufacture of products that involve animal testing, products whose ingredients might come from testing on animals or genetically modified organisms involving animal genes.
Well the vegan police will be busy ......could well be an advertising ploy >Just see someone chewing a big mac and seeing the site . There eyes light up red and downloading the program screaming all sorts of expletive's about don't tell me what to download because I'm a meat eater .
It sounds like a pretty arbitrary value system when defense contractors and gross polluters/habitat destroyers are on the list. This is kind like saying a butcher shop qualifies as virtuous because it doesn't sell veal.
Interesting! I don't know if I agree with the 'useless' comment. Can you explain what you mean?
It's useless because it's not like any companies actually doing these things are going to suddenly think "well gee, our company does make X amount of dollars from this research we're doing here, but wow, that piece of software is so appealing we'll just have to stop." One way or another they're going to find alternatives.
The license must not discriminate against any person or group of persons.
6. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor
The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program from being used in a business, or from being used for genetic research.
