I’m trying to get clarity on licensing of free plugins that are listed on WP.org or plugins elsewhere that are licensed under GPL, which I believe is the common.
I would like to offer users sub-sites on my WP Multiside Network. All plugins would be managed by the Super Admin, not the admin of the sub-sites. So the sub-site admin/customer would have to ask for a plugin to be installed/enabled.
I would like to charge for this but not sure if that’s ok or legal. Please keep in mind that I am only referring to free plugins. If there’s a paid plugin or a paid version of a free plugin that will later be upgraded to on a specific sub-site I would make sure the plugin owner receives their fee of course.
If the plugin is free can I charge to:
A) install it?
B) a monthly fee just for having it installed?
Hope I don’t step on any toes with this question but I simply don’t know what is legal and what is fair when it comes to free plugins.
The customer can of course create and install the same plugin on their own WP installation. I would simply do it for a fee on my WP Network.
