GPL Myths Debunked

Leland Fiegel recently published a great little summary of the common things that poeple get wrong in understanding the GPL license, under which WordPress and most of the plugins and themes in its ecosystem, are based. It’s a great introduction to topic, or a solid refresher if you’ve been dealing with this stuff for a while.

My favorite is his myth #4:

Myth #4: Okay, but if somebody redistributes my paid GPL code then I can write a blog post about how they’re taking food away from my family and everyone will hate them

Probably.
