If somebody writes a webbased SPSS or a company like creates
statistics on the SO usage with Math? Surely this is commercial use
and not really science?

Anyway the AL2.0 does not have restrictions who can use it or not; my
guess is it is not directly compatible.

But you really should ask legal@ in this case. I have not seen this
license listed here:
http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html

But they might be able to help you anyway.
