Copyright laws aren’t consistent Internationally, so I’m more interested in ethics as that covers things better

Correct, they are not consistent. However, ethics are not consistent either.

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.

That would be hotlinking and could be tracked by the source, just so you’re aware.

I think you need to be more specific with your question. If you’re talking about creating demos, ethically I don’t see an issue with this but again, ethical behavior can be subjective. While I may think it’s OK someone else could disagree. I find the best approach is to ask the source when you run into these types of questions.
