i was recently reading abou the GPL license which Wordpress is realeased under and to the best of my current knowledge, anything that uses any part of wordpress is automatically under GPL and is free . So basically any theme that you buy or plug-in that uses any part of wordpress can be freely modified, redistubuted etc. GPL- general public license , gives freedom to software or work released under it in terms of freedom to do what ever you want . ** i believe the themes n plugins come into GPL when they are installed not just the files, so the theme itself would be copyrighted etc, but when installed n used on Wordpress then it falls into GPL would this mean i can freely use premium themes anyoone else bought for my own commerical purposes ? Dont take this as legal advise, RESEARCH !!
