Can I use WP for commercial purpose? (3 posts)

    Hi I learn that WP falls under GNU-GPL. But still I need help to get some clarifications.

    1. Can I use WP for commercial purpose, rather building a personal blog?
    2. Can I build websites using WP for others and charge them for my
    services?
    3. Can I use any of the theme/plugin listed under
    http://wordpress.org/extend/ section, to build any website on
    commercial basis both for personal use or as a service provider?

    4. Is it mandatory to display "Powered by WordPress" at the footer?

    5. I have a commercial service site built on JAVA platform. Can I use
    WP to build a site which serves as a marketing face of the actual
    product? In other words, the existing JAVA site and WP site both
    will co-exist. In this case is there any way that WP licensing
    terms will impact my JAVA site?

    Thanks for your time.
