The Hippocratic License: a modification to the MIT license to restrict use to only ethical purposes.

This is a very important idea. Anyone know if and how this will work/be enforceable in practice?

@petrichor If the user of the code is breaching the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is the only category that's not allowed to use the software, I'd imagine they (the authorities in general) would be going after them for that crime rather than a breach of a licence. On the other hand, it signals as a developer/creator/author that you give a shit at least.
