WordPress Themes are GPL

WordPress released an opinion from the Software Freedom Law Center today confirming that WordPress themes must be GPL, although the images and CSS in a theme don’t have to be.

This is substantially similar to how Plone and Drupal have always thought that GPL applies to themes and add-on products, and it’s nice to see a project as large as WordPress putting its heft behind this common-sense interpretation of the GPL.
