Re: How to properly (re-)license a theme Reply #30 – May 19, 2013, 07:53:58 am Arantor, you could remove the copyright after changing a single LOC. It all depends on one thing: chance of winning litigation. We're not talking about ethics here because that is a feeling of being "right". We're talking about copyright as in law. If you don't think you'll be challenged or if you are challenged, you will win or if you lose you can deal with the consequences, you can go right ahead and remove it. That is how life/law works.Now, if you are talking about what is "right" ethically: if it feels wrong, it is wrong; if it feels right, get a second or third opinion just to make sure. I would err on the side of getting those opinions.Unless your ban system is completely different (unlikely) and the management of it is completely different (possible) than it is going to be a derivative of the original. I don't see how ManageBans in Elkarte isn't a derivative. Once again, it is all interpretation.
