I don't require them to keep the copyright on anymore. If they want, they can feel free to remove it.

I am doing it for the community. Maybe if enough people start to take my themes, modify them, and release them, the community will have more and more themes. Wink
And this is why I like you Smile.
But I think that is it still resembles your original theme in any way you should get a copyright.

I thought this thread would have been locked too... "This thread has run its course" again =P.

My honest opinion is that if your theme resembles mine it should bear my copyright. If it looks nothing like the original, or as I like to say looks like the mother (Toungue lolz), it should be able to bear no copyright.
I think anything majorly visible by the user should have a copyright (ie a theme, major plugin -like MyPlaza, or the software (ie "powered by MyBB").

If you were to walk into a store and but a pack of Oreos and you open the package of Oreos and scrape the "Oreo" text off of the entire package of Oreos itself and re-sell em as your own creation would you think that isn't right? I don't think it's right. I don't think a single person would disagree with me on that.
