This week we’ve had a real storm brewing in the WordPress community. It was brought about by the grand entrance of WP Avengers onto the scene, which rekindled talk about the GPL and ethical conduct between plugin and theme developers.
There have been some really excellent articles written, so instead of writing another lengthy post myself, I’d like to point you in the direction of these articles. I’ve found them very educational and excellent food for thought material. If you are involved with WordPress in any capacity, I suggest you go through them.
Captain Woo and the Island of Misfit Extensions – Brad Williams
Thoughts on GPL WordPress Plugins and Themes – Jason Coleman
You’ve been GPL’d – Michael Bastos
