Adsense code on an opensource php script

Discussion in 'Placement / Reviews / Examples' started by Sunx, Nov 6, 2016.

    I have a php-based project on sourceforge which is a web-based script. I am getting some downloads every day. Can I include my adsense code in the header php file of this script so that every time a user installs my php script, my adsense ads will also display?
    I just wonder whether this method is against Adsense TOS.
    If it is not against TOS, are there any risks for my adsense account with my ads being displayed on sites which I don't own or manage?

    Thanks in advance
