What is the License for the Themes and Plugins?

I am a little bit confused, in your Terms of Service is declared that everything you (resp. INCSUB) make is provided under the GPL 2.0 license but when I read the manual for the BuddyPress Business Theme, it is written that All Rights are Reserved. Under which license is now the content provided?

    Hello again @jonas,

    The GPL license does not mean that the software is copyright-free…

    On the contrary. It means that the software belongs to us, but it is open-source. You can inspect the source code, make modifications to it and share your improvements in the spirit of open-source.

    WordPress itself is GPL as well.

    It is owned by automattic, but is still an open-source project.

    Cheers,

    Ari.

    “ALL Rights Reserved” does not really suits the GPL License.

    It does.

    You can do whatever you want with it, but it’s still our product. That’s exactly what the GPL is… a way to ensure that you are free to make changes to the project’s source code, share that code etc, but the license, copyright etc still belong to the original author of the project.

    Cheers,

    Ari.
