I have seen this product in quite a few facebook groups so I decided to bring it here.
Person 1 makes a plugin, Person 2 downloads it and sells it. Which is allowed. Then the whole morality and ethics comments come…
To everyone that goes on about the morality and ethics…
Didn’t Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little profit from the bg/cafelog’s author product?
Jigoshop, got forked into WooCommerce, they try to buy Jigoshop, no, ok, so they hire some of the Jigoshop coders. WordPress/Automattic buys Woocommerce. Woocommerce itself has some “morality” / “ethics” questions themselves.
So why is it ok for WordPress & Woo to do it but when places like WPAvengers, GPL Club and many of the other plugin/theme shops doing the same thing then it is not ok?
If something is morally and ethically wrong then when others do THE SAME THING, then it is also morally and ethically wrong.
Yes I know a whole under me that leads to CMS hell is appearing under me for typing this.
