    First thing which I would like to say: There ain’t no such thing as free lunch.

    Such Premium WordPress themes which are added on such torrent sites or forums are usually hacked theme and comes with malicious code. Such malicious code, redirect readers to some other site, pass on juice. In worst case scenario your blog will get penalize from major search engines like Google.

    By the time you will realize all this, it will be too late to recover and you have to rely on Google webmaster reconsideration tool.

    I was working on one of the client site who was using latest version of Thesis: Thesis 2.1.9 While working on site I found few malicious code inside his theme file which was pointing to some casino based site.

    If you have downloaded Thesis theme it from some free sites or given by some one for free, and your search engine ranking decreases, I believe by now you understand the reason.

    Matt Mullenweg certainly thinks it should be free, or at least distributed under the GPL license, just like WordPress itself. What’s your take on that?
