Support » Everything else WordPress » selling WordPress-based CMS

  • I’m thinking about modifying WordPress, turning it into a CMS, and selling the resulting system.

    My question to you is: Can I completely remove the WordPress name from my product? Or does WordPress need to be credited somewhere?

    Thanks.

  • Look here.

    “There is nothing in the GPL to stop you selling your own version of somebody else’s GPL theme, as long as you credit the original creator somewhere in the code.
    e.t.a. and I’m not even sure that last requirement is set in stone.”

    I was aware that I was able to sell GPL licensed software.

    I;m still not sure whether or not I have to credit WordPress in the code or elsewhere, in my modified version. Is this a requirement or not?

    “Yes, you must make them aware that the work is GPL and they must make any version thay have modified also under GPL.”

    So from this I can infer that I must include a copy of the GPL with the modified software I plan to sell?

    yes, the GPL plainly says that.

    And GPL also states that any single user who buys the package can freely distribute it. Just as a reminder.
