5 thoughts on “CC to GPL

  1. I’ve found WordPress users seem to be very good about keeping legit backlinks in GPLed code. I’ve yet to come across a Tarski install that has removed them.

  2. I like Creative Commons licences, but they are designed for text, images etc. rather than software. Just as one would not think of applying the GPL to a textbook, similarly Creative Commons licences should not be used for software (even more ‘simple’ software such as WP themes).

  3. @david-
    the problem comes in precisely because CC licenses are good for images. themes cannot use CC images and GPL code. this almost always leads to a shortcoming in one area or the other. there are notable exceptions of course, but most themes do one or the other better, and are licensed accordingly.
