GPL has got me confused and I'm hoping that someone(s) can shed light on this.
For example, if I create a commercial theme for WordPress, I understand that the PHP code is GPL'd by default -- at least this is my understanding.
But what about the stylesheets, sample images, gradient images, icons, and layout? Are those also put under GPL by default, or can I specify a different license for those elements?
The theme won't be distributed with WordPress, but it really doesn't do anything without WordPress.
Thanks for any insight!
There is this article from around 3 years ago, judging by the comments to that article there doesn't seem to be a consensus. IANAL, you should consult a lawyer who deals with copyright if in any doubt.
Thanks a lot for that, SpacePhoenix. I have spoken to a couple Copyright attorneys and their opinion is that it's gray area and not really settled on way or the other.
I didn't read through the comments knowing all too well what those types of topics can spiral into, but the article makes some good points and does answer my question.
This topic is now archived. It is frozen and cannot be changed in any way.
