[Resolved] What are the legal issues of using a theme's images?
I found a cool free theme from woothemes. The annoying thing is it has the woo themes logo and the header is just the name of the theme and there is no built in option to change it.
I have enough knowledge to edit the code and change this, and make my own title, get rid of the woothemes logo etc.
Basically I can make a child theme which will be perfect.
But what makes this theme cool is the background, which is sort of blurred paint.
If I create a child theme naturally it inherits these images.
Is it legal for me to use this child theme without the WooTheme logo?
I’ve read on the forums that the general wordpress license means it is legal to modify the theme however you like once you have it, but since I don’t own the images that have been used as the background, can I still use this?
I don’t even mind sending them a donation or something, it’s just that I want this free theme as it looks cool.
