    The second domain name contravenes the WordPress Trademark Policy.

    ^^ Care to elaborate as to how it "contravenes the trademark policy"?

    From what I read it is ok :
    The primary purpose of your project is to promote the spread and improvement of the WordPress software.

    Your project is non-commercial in nature (it can make money to cover its costs or contribute to non-profit entities, but it cannot be run as a for-profit project or business).

    Your project neither promotes nor is associated with entities that currently fail to comply with the GPL license under which WordPress is distributed.

    The site gives out FREE themes, probably has helped dozens of users too ... So please, explain.

    *Note, I cannot speak for WordPress, but I'd like to hope they aren't too strict on their trademark :P*

  4. You're reading it wrong and there is not much to explain.*

    From http://wordpressfoundation.org/trademark-policy/

    We will grant permission to use the WordPress name and logo for projects that meet the following criteria:

    The foundation will grant that permission. When it comes to trademarks you do not get to say "Oh I think it's alright so I'll just assume that I have permission."

    Also? Stop posting links to that theme site. Those links and posts will be deleted when found. They distribute (old insecure) commercial themes and are basically taking away income from the developers who are selling GPL'ed software.

    *Note: I'm not part of or work for the WordPress Foundation. But I can read and do understand what I read. ;)

    *apologies*
    Also, I posted this before you editing my other post. I actually came back here to remove it/fix it as you did, but you beat me to it.
    Although, again... My apologies :P

  6. No apologies needed, no harm no foul. ;)

    Jan, I'm quite weak on english language.
    Could you please explain more about the sentence.

    "They distribute (old insecure) commercial themes and are basically taking away income from the developers who are selling GPL'ed software."

    And my last question is "freewordpressthemes.cenware.com" is contravenes policy because of my website look like commercial purpose, right?

    Thanks for your information.

    Sometimes me too. ;)

    "They distribute (old insecure) commercial themes and are basically taking away income from the developers who are selling GPL'ed software."

    I'm sorry but I had gone off topic and was discussing another site that distributes commercial themes that are not paid for and are old versions. I have a problem with that for many reasons.

    Your site does not do that and I really was discussing that other unnamed site.

    And my last question is "freewordpressthemes.cenware.com" is contravenes policy because of my website look like commercial purpose, right?

    Not for that reason, commercial looking sites are fine. The trademark question (I am not a lawyer) is because you are using "WordPress" in your domain name. "freewpthemes.cenware.com" would be fine. Or even a URL like freethemes.cenware.com/wordpress/" as URL paths are fine.

    Note: I'm not a lawyer but you get the idea, please don't use the word "WordPress" in your domain name.
