I think this is a good question,  I'll admit I did this for a while using
AllAdvantage ads on the MUD web-page.  Honestly, I  didn't think it
violated the liscence because the game was still free, not signing up for
AllAdvantage didn't impare game-play in any way, shape, or form.  I think
what the liscence is trying to prohibit is the restricting the game (i.e.
you have to pay $5 to be able to practice) unless you either pay money or
do something (i.e. donate hardware).  Now this was *my* interpretation but
I guess the real question will have to be answered by George and the
CircleMUD lawyers :)
