We’ve been old friends with the iThemes guys for years. Besides the friendship, they also build great premium WordPress themes and we partner with them to provide customization and support for those themes.
A couple weeks ago iThemes announced that they are changing their licensing model from the traditional copyrighted version to the GPL license. What does that mean for developers? The themes are still not free, but the multi-use licenses are gone. Once you buy a theme you can re-use it anywhere and any way you choose.
We were able to get Cory Miller and Chris Jean in our studio last week to talk about why they made this change.
