Bowe (and others !) , I am sorry that you shout out blurps before actually reading up on things, but I understand completely as I also do not always read every text file in every archive.

However, if you accuse someone of stealing you may want to do some homework first !

The items we are “selling” are adopted by us to work for the dutch market where needed. Furthermore we do not charge for the themes and plugins themselves as is clearly stated on the site. There is nothing wrong with charging a fee for our services to maintain the site and provide support, per the licenses as included with the files. All these licenses are intact and included with our distributions. We do not imply anywhere that the files are ours and in fact there is reference to wpmudev right on our site.Furthermore we re-distribute under the same licenses and as such you have the same rights as we do.

If we are in any form acting under false assumptions we will stand corrected and act accordingly, but for your pleasure we included an exerpt of the license as included with the files. If you still decide that we are “stealing” then keep your post as is, but if this reply has taught you something about GPL licenses we would appreciate you revoking your allegations.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not

price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you

have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for

this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it

if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it

in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid

anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.

These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you

distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether

gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that

you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the

source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their


…..You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and

you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.


to make it a bit easier still for you (as we know you are also dutch):

De GNU General Public License of kortweg de GPL is een copyleftlicentie voor software, bedacht door Richard M. Stallman, die (in het kort) stelt dat je met de software mag doen wat je wil (inclusief aanpassen en verkopen), mits je dat recht ook doorgeeft aan anderen en de auteur(s) van de software vermeldt. Concreet komt dat er op neer dat als je software die onder de GPL is gepubliceerd wilt verkopen, je daar de broncode bij zult moeten doen. Deze broncode mag dan weer verder worden verspreid onder de GPL. Iedereen kan ervoor kiezen zijn of haar programma onder de voorwaarden van deze licentie te publiceren.
