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 ?
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.
Oh ! I got it... And this applies to every thing, i.e, mod panels and addons stuff...
Thanks to you all, for your Response... :) You gave me another suitable and useful Tip for the future and so to the others :)
Anyways, Thanks to you Fangree for your kind help regarding this :) and Behrooz for taking necessary actions quickly... :)

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 ? B)
