    As writing in WordPress theme page:
    Contrary to popular belief, GPL doesn't say that everything must be zero-cost, just that when you receive the software or theme that it not restrict your freedoms in how you use it.

    Basically i am talking about companies like themeforest that charging extra money for WordPress MultiSite:

    Isn't it wrong against GPL? Dont we have rights to use proper licensed themes in multisite?

    This is not the place for GPL discussions.

    The Ideas sections is to pitch ideas for the betterment of WordPress CORE. Not themes, not plugins, and certainly not GPL.
