The problem is that the idea of building a ToDo application is not new.

In 2006 Avi and Andrew presented such an application as part of their
"Advanced Seaside" tutorial at Smalltalk Solutions in Toronto [1]. I
used a similar example as part of my "The Art of Seaside" and "Web
2.0" presentations at ESUG 2006 in Prague [2]. Also the article
published this year in IEEE Software uses this example [3].
Furthermore, I know of a few other projects where the domain of a ToDo
application was or is used.

I think it is a perfect example, and I don't have anything against
reusing it. However you have to pay attention what license you pick,
otherwise you could shoot yourself in the foot as well.
