CopyRight Question...

Recently I stumbled the Beautiful Verde theme, by XoopsMexico and XOOPS Brasil. I've seen it on http://theme.xoofoo.org
I wanted to download it.

I went to the XOOPS Brasil website and found the xmbluext1 theme and found-out they both have the same structure, only different colors. So I started changing the xmbluext1 theme to make it like the verde theme.

Anyway, I won't upload the finished theme to my website, cause I'm afraid of Copyright issues, since the theme developers worked hard.

So I wanted to know if I'll be OK by uploading and using it?

Or where can I download the Verde theme? xoopsTotal is under maintenance...

From where can I get permission to modify the theme?

And final question, Can I change the xmbluetext1 theme to make it in my own colors, not like the verde theme?

Just want to be Okay(;

Both themes can be found in http://theme.xoofoo.org just select the themes on the left side of the page.

Re: CopyRight Question...

Kris releases his themes under the GPL, to my knowledge. Ultimately it is best etiquette to ask the designer for permission to create derivative works for redistribution. However, modifying for personal use is generally allowed. If you are unsure, ask kris directly. He is always around.

Re: CopyRight Question...

It isn't his theme, but I'll ask XOOPS Brasil when they will be back...
