    License? It doesn’t look like GPL to me.

    Just keep all credit where it belongs

    The theme is offered “as is” pre-bundled with plugins that are redistributed with all of their information in-tact.

    You can download, edit, erase, and do whatever with the code of BIV.

    I’ve never bothered with licensing on any themes, so I’m a bit in the dark as how I would make this “GPL” or why it isn’t already “GPL”.

    Please, tell me what about this theme doesn’t keep the “credit where it belongs”?

    The quote I gave was from your theme download page.

    BIV is open source. Just keep all credit where it belongs, and you can change, alter, edit and dispose of whatever you want to.

    GPL licensed themes do not insist that credits are left intact. It may considered polite to do so but it’s not a usage condition. However, only GPL licensed themes can be promoted within this forum.

    I think that was a little misworded (on my behalf). I’ll reword it. When I was speaking of credit, I was referring to the prepacked plugins that were included in the theme itself.

    The easiest method is simply say that it’s released under GPL 2 and provide a link to the license if necessary.

    http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html

    works for me.
