What you’re really looking for is someone to say that it’s OK.

No, what I’m looking for is what I asked. It would be much easier to simply link to the scripts instead of copying them and creating them on my server. If I wee dishonest as you imply, I wouldn’t care what others think and would just do what I want. I certainly wouldn’t give credit to the creators of the script either.

Copyright laws aren’t consistent Internationally, so I’m more interested in ethics as that covers things better, in my opinion, than the so called law, especially in the U.S.

Since your opinion is that it is wrong, when someone gives a demo on their page of a function one likes, and you want to modify the colors, or something else, how is that done without copying it, altering it, and saving it on your own server. The answer is you can’t.
