Hi, my question is about an abandoned theme by its owner who announced he's not claiming any rights to it, nor is he supporting it anymore, and he's not answering any questions. He wrote a message that he's also saying goodbye to internets..
Well, I like his theme and have been using it for a long time, I even hacked it completely giving it a makeover so much so it is unrecognizable on the surface, but the underlying code remains in more or less the same form.
What I would like to do is to remove the theme header information in the code, since he's no longer claiming any rights to it. I tried doing it and the whole blog went blank, so I had to restore it to original. I understand that it is a protection code to protect the copyrights, but in this case it is no longer necessary.
Is there a way to do this, since I am not able to reach the code designer?
