comment Ashamed to admit using jQuery?
@detly The fact that you can download jQuery library from a given page doesn't necessarily mean they're distributing it - it's just a coincidence of how web pages work. I might have a modified jQuery sitting in my web server, if you figure out how to download it, is it more like you hacking into my site or me distributing it? There's a lot of gray area in this whole thing.

@detly But isn't it usually the case that the JavaScript running on the browser is just part of the whole application. It's quite rare that you can just download the web page and have the whole app working offline inside your machine. You might say it's a client app that's been distributed to the user as a web page. But in that case doesn't a plain HTML page also constitute a client app? Where do you draw the line?

comment I still can't figure out how to program?
I made many attempts of writing games in the beginning. Without basic algorithms-and-data-structures course under my belt I usually failed miserably. I was often banging my head against the impenetrable wall. But I did manage to complete some simple games. And when I did, it was a moment of great satisfaction. So I guess everybody should at least attempt to write a game. It's going to hurt, but it's good for you.

@mipadi, sure, but MIT license doesn't say what does it mean to distribute the software. I assumed that MIT and GPL are compatible enough that "distributing" means the same thing.

@josh3736 Could you point out a law that says this? GPL for example has a FAQ that specifically says this doesn't qualify as distributing. There is the Affero GPL licence if you want to disallow that kind of use.
