comment Using a GPL game engine
It is not obvious from looking at their site. They appear to have proprietary games listed on the example page. The only way to get an definitive answer is to ask them. If you get an answer from them you should answer your own question here.

comment GPL - what is distribution?
The GPL3 uses the terms "Convey" and "Propagate" rather than distribute.

@WinstonEwert When I say "source code" I mean the original Dart source files used to generate the javascript. I will update my answer to make this clear.

comment Running software as a service using unmodified GPL(v2+) program as a core dependency: must the SaaS source code be released?
"No" is correct but it main reason you don't is that you are not distributing the GPL covered work (only making it available online). This is a known quality of the GPL (both 2 and 3); there is a separate license the Affero GPL license that covers the case of application made available online and not "distributed".

comment GPL License - Selling and Stealing
I don't think a regular employee working with GPL software in the course of their employment counts as distributing it to the employee. They are acting as an agent of the company and thus the software was not distributed to them personally so they do not personally get the rights provided by the GPL. A contractor may be different depending on the contract.

Will your program work without the GPL'd program or is it only usable if you have the GPL'd software?

comment Using an AGPL 3.0-licensed library for extra functionality in an iOS app
Be aware a that there is (or at least there was) some debate about GPLed apps in the Apple App store so if your App must be GPLed because of the library you are including you may want to make sure this won't run into conflicts with the App Store TOS.

comment Using an AGPL 3.0-licensed library for extra functionality in an iOS app
This is odd, the AGPL generally doesn't make sense for non-web apps, since the AGPL was designed for server-side code that was not technically distributed. Can you name the library?

comment Confusion about dual license (MIT/GPL) javascript for use on my website
For a definitive answer to questions about a specific package's license you can always ask the author (or copyright holder). Their interpretation of the license is the only one that matters because only they can sue you.

comment How can I explain the difference between NULL and zero?
Change the textbox to say "Data unavailable" instead of the empty string.
