in this case, it is a copyright breach of GPL, as stated in
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#ModifyGPL as any modification
is not allowed to be called GNU.

This is a statement! 

We are mainly focusing on non-commercial and free community networks 
initiatives. We do not want to support any sorts of trendy security paranoia, 
military usage, nor (as mentioned earlyer) these Big Brother eyes in any 
public/private areas.
Unfortunately, i am not aware of any license which really takes care of this 
aspect or even allows legal enforcement.

BTW: The GPU project has once raised a few discussions with 
their "non-military license" initiative. Seems to be not easy.

All documents/code on open-mesh.net are licensed individually and define this 
with its header of footer.
Generally, most of the source code (BATMAN) is licensed under GPL, so it 
allows commercial usage...
Most of the documents as well as the content of the web-pages is licensed 
under CC by-nc-sa. This license does not allow commercial usage.

Unfortunately, I don't think that there is any Free License that does 
this, but I know that HESSLA 
(http://www.hacktivismo.com/about/hessla.php) does prevent people who 
abuse Human Rights from doing this.  I don't think this is really 
legally enforcable, but it may be more-so than "No Military".  However, 
I do know that the FSF doesn't consider any of these conditions free 
licenses.

On the other hand, if someone was using it for military or surveillance 
purposes, how much would you bet that they aren't sharing source code!

Re: batman license

Different licenses for different parts of the puzzle? I see a conflict here. Commercial actors may have the
tools (code) but not the knowledge (documentation) necessary to make them work. Perhaps releasing the
code as text (under CC by-na-ca) rather than as code (under GPL) would bring about harmony of intention and
the non-commercial restriction desired. Else GPL the documentation like the code and be done with it.
