If I use Ext in my app and I distribute my app (with the Ext files I need), does my app automatically becomes GPL'ed?

To clarify,

I plan to release my app under some sort of open source license, probably MIT or BSD, or something similar. I think Ext is one of the best JavaScript libraries out there. Good software deserves being proliferated; except maybe GPL'ed software. If distributing my app (which is 80% done) with Ext will infect it into a GPL zombie, then I'm ripping Ext and replacing it with something else and never looking at it again, no matter how nice it is.

I know Ext, the company, wants to make money, and IMHO, it deserves it for creating such a nice product. But I don't want to get infected.

Thanks.

This sounds like "most likely".

No thanks. I'm removing this sweet library from my hard disk. Better safe than sorry. sayonara

No, I was just saying that I'm personally not able to answer your question, so I was directing you to those who can.
