Template license issues
« on: April 27, 2008, 06:41:02 PM »
Hello,

some forum members informed us that some of the templates listed on the WebsiteBaker addons repository have been listed under a wrong license.

Most templates affected are ports from http://www.oswd.org, distributed under a Creative Commons license. As some of the affected templates require a attribution (e.g. backlink in the footer), we decided to remove all templates for internal reviewing.

We consecutively add the templates back to the addons repository once the license issues are sorted out. If you still find templates distributed with a wrong license, please notify us by posting in this thread.

Regards Christian

Your IMPULSE template clearly violated our RocketTheme license, and should be removed immediately.

« Reply #2 on: May 15, 2008, 10:17:31 PM »
Hello,

we fixed the license issues of the templates listed below and added them back to the addons repository.

Free templates originally designed by Andreas Viklund:
1024px, andreas00, andreas01, andreas02, andreas03, andreas06, andreas07, andreas08, andreas09.

Free templates ported from open source template portals:
ambiance, artificial_intellig ence, a_bit_modern, bitter_sweet, dark_ritual, gt1, landzilla, landzilla_mod, purple_beauty, the_island, whitespace, blarneystone_pc, fluidity, plain2, multiflex-1, multiflex-2, multiflex-3.

Note: If you are using one of the templates listed above, please update to the latest version available on the addons repository. If you have applied any modifications you need to backup your template first and add the changes manually.

Regards Christian

Hi,

at first: maybe I'm interpreting your statement in a wrong way - I'm not a natural english speaker.

The problem here discussed, is not the "why do you create things new" and also not "why don't you implement" ...
It's a thread about "fairness" - if someone adopt an existing layout to a WebsiteBaker template it's more then fair to keep the copyright notices of the original layout designer intact, and not to remove them or change the licence the layout was initially made.

Regards Bernd
