When you shared with us a GPL plugin or theme (as Genesis, WP-Rocket, etc) in your courses, we could legally use this on our websites and commercial projects, or is just for testing it locally?
So most plugins and themes for WordPress are GPL licensed. This means that you can share, redistribute, and even resell them.
When you buy a plugin or theme you are really purchasing auto updates and support. In fact, many paid plugins are freely available for download on Github.
This all kinda stinks for developers because they don't own anything proprietary.
Hi. GPL licence gives you permission to share a plugin you have bought and change the source code as you like. So you can use it on your live site with no worries
Well Elementor Pro is an exception as it isn't GPL. See this topic:
