    I am a woo themes member with a developer package. If I share themes with someone else can it be tracked back to me? Does woo have those kinds of call backs? I would think that it wouldn't need to be nulled but thought I'd ask anyway.

    If you have a developer package it wouldn't make any sence to have a call back. You can give it to your 'clients' if you wanted so I would think No Problems

    Agree with above can't see and reason for the developer version to have any trackbacks. Read a lot of debate recently about Premium themes. As they are all built on wordpress, which is open source (and free!), could you ever be taken to court for using one without purchasing it?

    General opinion is no!

    Sorry wandered off track then, I would really like the developer version of woo theme OPTIMIZE if you have it with psd's that would be mega!:)

    I'm actually against the idea of selling modifications of Open Source software. Creating a callback with a script is breaking the whole idea of Open Source.

    There are plenty of premium wordpress type cms/bms systems that you could create premium themes for.

    a) Just because it's built on open source doesn't mean the WooThemes package itself is open-source. You are liable if you pirate it.

    b) There might be a tracking code / footprint so they can figure out that you pirated it.
