It depends. It's not a question that can be answered easily, and it's 
certainly not on-topic here. Keep in mind that *using* licensed code on 
a web site is completely different than *distributing* licensed code. In 
many cases, you have no obligation to reveal the source for code you are 
not distributing.

A license can contain almost any kind of restriction, however. Without 
more details, only you are in the position to determine if you're 
violating any licenses. But you'll need to find a more appropriate 
forum, where you're likely to get better advice.
