The JSON license

Link: The JSON license

I was looking at the acknowledgement screen of Apple TV today and found that the JSON license is there and includes the following text:

The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil.a) is this license (for JSON.org parser I assume) compatible to OSI? I guess not.

b) isn’t Apple doing anything evil? Who decides what is evil anyways?

Quick google search shows the same question on Quora.
