my personal opinion: Extension ownsers need to life from something but
IMO it could be handled a bit better.

IMO it is allowed

Maybe it would leed to more extensions you need to really buy and get
them with more features and less ads.

Really: How much did you ever pay to get TYPO3 and its extensions from
TER? Nothing, cero, null!

If you don't like it, don't use it, make an better extension or of
course use something like XCLASS to make it adfree
