Envate, source of many GPL ruckus of late, is finally moving forward and allowing their theme and plugin authors to choose a proper 100% GPL license.
After getting this community feedback, we are now putting into the works an optional 100% GPL license which authors in GPL-based categories (such as WordPress or Drupal) can make use of. It will be completely up to authors whether they use this option. The new option should be available towards the end of March, and we’ll be posting on Notes about how authors can make use of it.
I could bitch and moan about why they thought they needed data to instate an option that should’ve been there from day one, but I’m not going to. Instead, I’m just glad they now are helping the WordPress community forward. Like they should.
