    HI all Sorry if this is in the wrong forum ( mods please move if needed)

    I have a plugin that i would like to add to the plugin directory how ever i would like to know are we allowed to encrypt the source codes of some of the files ( as its the free version that will have a small link on it ) which when it is installed on clients wordpress blog it shows up and i dont want them to delete it.

    There will be a pro upgrade version which will remove the copyright.

    i hope this explains ( i have seen some free download plugins have encoded there script i just wanted to check with you all

    Check this out for some info. You need to ask the users permission to display the link. And per GPL, they have to be able to remove it. They can modify your code however they see fit.
