ThemeForest Now Offers 100% GPL Licensing Option

Envato promised a 100% GPL licensing option, and now it’s here.

It took them just one month to finalize all the legal stuff and it’s available for theme sellers to license their themes (and plugins on CodeCanyon) with a GPL license.

This is a big move for the WordPress theme marketplace industry, as well as to help keep high standards as other companies may launch their own marketplaces or theme companies.

This will help resolve the WordCamp GPL issues.

    However a failure. Few theme authors release their themes with GPL, also if you follow the discussions at the TF forums, authors really don’t get why they should use GPL.
