As seen on Envato Notes:

We’ve got some exciting news! Today we’re happy to announce that authors on ThemeForest and CodeCanyon can now choose to license their WordPress items through an 100% GPL option. You can find all the details about the new GPL option on the Envato Knowledgebase.

To help us launch this new feature, one of the most well known and respected theme outfits is joining ThemeForest’s ever growing library — WooThemes!

This is a very exciting change for Envato and you can read Collis’s post on Notes for all the details! If you have any questions about the new 100% GPL option, please feel free to ask them in this thread. :)

A little slow off the mark, but you got the idea in the end.

@jonathan01 it’s the old “do as we say, not as we do” tactic. HAHA! Rules are meant to be broken when dollar signs are involved $$$$$$$

I love this line the most “To help us launch this new feature, one of the most well known and respected theme outfits is joining ThemeForest’s ever growing library — WooThemes!”

What? You gotta bring some other theme provider into the mix when there are plenty of current authors who would be more than willing to help launch this new feature.

Yeah the whole thing is just a little insulting to every author here that has helped build it to what it is today…. ah well.

just what I wanted to say, I don’t want to be involved in discussion about this, but I fully agree with you.

Time will show how many of authors will really decide for 100% GPL

Hey guys,

you were right, and the link was removed. That being said, some of the comments pointing to that error have also been removed as they no longer apply. Please stay on-topic from now on, and jonathan01, thank you for pointing that out. It happens to the best of us :)

Cheers

Oh man, now you guys censoring people… not good :*(

I’m sad you feel “censored” but holding a discussion on topic, after an admitted mistake has been corrected, and previous comments have been taken into account and affected a Staff members reply is anything but “censorship”. Any comment in relation to the GPL issue or personal opinions on the matter have been left untouched, and will continue to do so.

Thank you for your understanding.

Hi guys, the reason I linked to WooThemes was to give you an idea of who they are and what they do. They aren’t technically our competitors since they’ve joined forces with us. :)

My concern is that some of you are focusing on off-topic chit chat rather than contributing to the thread. If you’d like to give me any feedback, please feel free to do so via my profile. Otherwise, please lets focus on discussing GPL licenses.

Gotta agree, not sure why Woo adding their themes to TF is anything to celebrate
