We’ve been all coding under the threat that some troll will pop-up and re-sell our GPL plugins / themes for ridiculous prices. Well… it’s here How about buying Yoast Premium SEO for $4.00… I’m a little pissed off and on the other hand amused since I knew it will show up some day.
Even though it doesn’t violate the GPL, in the current case, the site is using the branding, names and logos of the plugins, so I’m pretty sure it’s illegal. How do we get it down?
From a user perspective, if I were a new publisher in the WP community and I had the option to choose, I would have probably preferred to pay $4.00 instead of $89.00 for an SEO plugin (whether it’s called Yoast or Yost). Do you feel threaten?
