1. Plugin Licensing
Paid Memberships Pro and all Add Ons, unless otherwise stated, are licensed under the GNU General Public License (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html) version 2.0.
This means, among other things, that you may use the software on this site or any other site free of charge. You can run this code on as many sites as you want. The code is not obfuscated, so you can customize it to fit your needs or use the code in your own projects.
In fact, you can do pretty much anything you want with our code as long as you follow the GPLv2 guidelines by applying the GPLv2 license to any altered or unaltered versions of our plugins that you distribute.
If you are using an altered version of one of our plugins in one of your projects, we do ask that you:
(a) Give your software a name other than “Paid Memberships Pro” or “PMPro” to avoid confusion.
(b) Notify us of your distributed version so we can potentially promote the distribution if it’s a good effort.
More information on why we’ve settled on this license can be found in our blog post here: https://www.paidmembershipspro.com/paid-memberships-pro-is-100-gpl-and-why/
Plugins sold and distributed by Stranger Studios, LLC, are done so in the hope that they will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
