Hello all,

I was just going through the Referrers of my website and I found a website to be using a theme without the Copyright added. The Theme was made by me and it is having a little link-back to my site with the Theme Author name(me).

So, please tell me that whether it is legal to do that ? I mean under the License...

Because I don't think that the website is having any License as it seems to e running on Free License.

Also tell me, if one has License for Copyright removal, then whether he/she is able to Remove or modify the Copyrights related to the Themes they are using(made by anyone) or not ?

For your convenience, the site is : http://www.pciran...

Thank You

Regards,
Ankur Thakur

No if he has purchased a Copyright Removal License then that is only to remove the Footer notice PHP-Fusion Copyright and it does not cover Themes, so no theme copyright should ever be removed.

This is Behrooz site I will speak to him.

EDIT: Ankur Come on MSN a minute and we will resolve this.

Other people should note that paying for a licence to remove the PHP-Fusion copyright does NOT entitle you to remove any other author titles or credits *. That must negotiated separately with the author(s).

I realise this case was an oversight and put right very quickly. But, some may not see the distinction.

* This does not count for Core themes released in the download package.

Sorry to Woke Up the sleeping thread again but can anyone suggest me that What should I do if there is no response regarding the Warning made by the Author to the Violator ?

My Theme also comes in the category of Open source when I have included the AGPL Licence Header in the theme file (which we usually included in all mods) so it means that I can contact his Host regarding the issue and License violation ? Cool
