    Nice, but I bet they don’t plan on open sourcing their template/CSS.

    I bet you are correct.

    Nor do they need to by any stretch of the GPL. Very cool news.

    Allusion, I know they don’t have to, but it would be nice to have access to a template like that.

    Nothing really difficult.
    Have a look at the source, have a look at wp-layout.css (so it’s probably a 1.2) and here you are…

    Except that you have to worry about copyright on the design….

    Isn’t copyright for the content, but
    you need a patent for the design?

    Either way, if they don’t publicly release it, it’s probably not legal for anyone else to use it.

    If a product is not patented, anybody could create the same product and do whatever with it, right?

    Yes, but a company does not need to clearly state a patent. They can, however, initiate a lawsuit once they find you using their patented design. Trust me (especially with Apple), unless they tell you that it’s publicly available, it’s not. Apple calls it, “Intellectual Property”.

    I’m not sure, but they don’t have any copyright notice in the template (wp-layout.css). Maybe if you use enough of your own makings (heading and others) i guess they won’t bark at you. I agree it is a nice basis, and derivative works are allowed, aren’t they?

    Just ask politely, and I guess you can have it.
