Дети, не используйте эти слова.

7. Apache Software Foundation bans JSON license

For some of us involved in open source legal matters, Douglas Crockford's JSON license keeps turning up like a bad penny. The JSON license famously modifies the MIT license by adding a sentence before the warranty disclaimer: "The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil." It is not clear whether Crockford intended the license purely as a joke, or as an oblique political statement, or both. Many who care about having a principled basis for classifying licenses as free, or open source, see the "Good, not Evil" clause as conflicting with basic definitional norms that disallow field of use restrictions and discrimination based on field of endeavor. Some have argued that the clause is not enforceable and thus should not be taken seriously; however, the FSF, which classifies the JSON license as non-free, argues that it cannot be presumed that the restriction is unenforceable. Another objection to the license is that "Good" and "Evil" are undefined and thus the scope of conduct that is allowed and prohibited is highly uncertain.

Шикарно. Обычно лицензию ни кто не читает. Интересно кто нашел это?

Девелопервы, что используют либы, всегда читают. По крайней мере, для меня немыслимо заюзать в проекте чей-то код, не прочитав лицензию.

"Affected open source developers have asked Crockford to change the license,[16][17][18] but he has generally refused to do so.[19] He has, however, granted "IBM, its customers, partners, and minions" permission "to use JSLint for evil", a solution which appeared to satisfy IBM's lawyers.[20]"
