Even if you could exclude cyber crime and spying from a legal use by your license - do you
really think that these users would follow your license?

Is it maybe possible not to exclude people or organisations, but concrete usage scenarios
instead?

Like cyber crime and/or spying

Which is, once again, neither 'free software' nor open source because
it goes against the definition.  You can't have it both ways: you
can't exclude people from using it because they are military, gay,
Illinois nazis, Alaskan women, Liechtensteiners or whatever else you
happen to dislike.
