From last few days issue between WordPress and Thesis Theme was on fire because of GPL licensing of Thesis theme. Whole WordPress community was getting divided into two part over GPL issue and twitter hash tag for Thesis theme #thesiswp was spammed over this GPL issue.
Finally today Pearsonified (Creator of Thesis theme) officially made an announcement that Thesis WordPress theme is now GPL compliant. To be more precise he added following tweets:
“Friends and lovers: Thesis now sports a split GPL license. Huzzah for harmony!”
“The PHP is GPLv2; CSS, JS, and images are proprietary.”
They have also added a note about GPL licensing of Thesis WordPress theme in the official TOS page, which says:
Thesis General PHP License
Thesis Proprietary Use License
