WP Plugins and the GPL (3 posts)

    I've been running into a lot of commercial plugins while doing work for people on their WP sites. This is not in regards to any specific plugin available online.

    I was under the impression that anything based off the WP code base had to be GPL-comptible, or it was in violation of the license.

    So, anyone know the actual requirements?

    Something being GPL doesn't exclude it from being commercial.

    I'm aware of that. :)

    But something being GPL does require the source be open.
