I just encountered a software library using an otherwise plain MIT license except for one small addition:
"The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil."
This is the first time I've seen something like this and I absolutely love it!
It's a no-op for hobbyists, researchers, etc, but an absolute poison pill for any organization serious enough to have a compliance department.
@cuchaz That's the Crockford's JSON license. He actually had to make an exception for IBM, at their request they and their customers are allowed to use the software for evil.
@deshipu Wow, nailed it!
I had no idea this was famous.
