so I guess if somebody wants to change the text saying that I designed the theme, then they can. It’s just that the GPL makes this legal, which is baffling.

Funny that in five years nobody told you this is completely wrong. GPL forces attribution, if they don’t give you credit but pretend to be the original authors, then they are violating the copyleft license.

I get paid for the hours I put in developing the theme.

How, under a GPL licence which would let people add a ‘theme designed by http://liars.com‘ would this help me get repeat business? It doesn’t. It means that other theme developers can claim they designed my theme, and use this as an online portfolio to get repeat work from the work that I have done.

Once a WordPress theme is out there, it is trivial to reproduce regardless of the licence – it’s all text-reader-readable anyway, so I guess if somebody wants to change the text saying that I designed the theme, then they can. It’s just that the GPL makes this legal, which is baffling.

Haiku:

You stole my client
by claiming my theme was yours
That hardly seems fair

Excellent article btw. I read through a ton of posts on this subject and this article made the most sense.
