I am thinking of basing the MyBB system for something completely new & innovative, make a social network off of it in a way, is there a chance I can do this completely legally & I even plan on putting powered by MyBB on the bottom but modifying completely to the way I want.

I know that this maybe be something stupid in a way because there are already systems out there to work off of but I want to personally do this.
Read to find out what is acceptable in terms of code reuse/rebranding.
Have a read of the LGPL licence:

There is more information about what you can and can't do under the GPL licences here:

In general, so long as your new system is also licensed under a GPL or GPL compatible licence and you retain the source code copyrights then you should be fine.
Ahh, ya, that is my fault for not looking. I looked around & was like, where would it go XD Well, thank you very much for putting this all up for me Smile My worry is if I put this all up, who would hack it...

Even more than that just it. Well, thank you very much again, will refer if I have more questions Smile

Knowing that you have an account with H4P (at least on the forums), Hacking is against the TOS. Just so you know Smile
