    There are 3 licence claims in the description page.

    1. It starts with claiming a GPL3 license.
    2. Then under the Title License, the author claims copyrights to this plugin, 2013-2014, which he legally can’t to the php code, but can partially do it I guess foran css, and js scripts.
    3. And to make things even more confusing, the author declares that this is a free software, a GNU.

    So, the question that I have here, do you understand copyright laws, and laws regarding open source, or is this some sort of a legal scam, a way to fool users in some way regarding the licensing. As far as I know, WordPress.org only allows GPL software in the repositories, so I unless things changed, or I’m mistaken in any way, what is this copyright claims all about? I can understand trademark claims, but copyright? Either you are confused, or trying to pull something, or I’m totally confused.

    Great plugin, btw, thanks. Looking forward of giving it good review after fully testing it.

    I will surely check it and correct the things about GPL and licensing. I am clear about all these things and it’s really an open-source but as cloning basic files from previous plugin directories so same thing carried further. Copyrights doesn’t mean like someone cannot use or modify it, it was initially used in a pro plugin but mistakenly same text copied in free one. I appreciate your interest and I will surely fix these confusions.

    I have just updated the files and will update in my other plugins as well. Thank you so much for the correction.

    I just wish all developers would be as gracious as you Fahad. The best thing that I can do to thank you for your efforts is to give you an honest review, which I will after I play with it for a day or two.

    Once again, thanks for everything.
