What are the legal risks if any of using a GPL’ed Web Application Framework/CMS?

        <p>Am I correct in saying that using a GPL'ed web application framework such as Composite C1 would NOT obligate a company to share the source code we write against said framework?  </p>

That is the purpose of the AGPL, am I correct?

Does this also apply to Javascript frameworks like KendoUI?

The GPL would require any changes that we make to the framework be made available to others if we were to offer it for download.

In other words, merely loading a web sites content into my browser is not "conveying" or "distributing" that software.

I have been arguing that we should avoid GPL web frameworks and now after researching I am pretty sure I am wrong but wanted to get other opinions?
