Licenses – Bundled Resources Licenses – Bundled Resources

GPLGPL GPL is an acronym for GNU Public License. It is the standard license WordPress uses for Open Source licensing https://wordpress.org/about/license/. The GPL is a ‘copyleft’ license https://www.gnu.org/licenses/copyleft.en.html. This means that derivative work can only be distributed under the same license terms. This is in distinction to permissive free software licenses, of which the BSD license and the MIT License are widely used examples.-Compatible Image Licenses GPL-Compatible Image Licenses

There are two licenses for images that are GPL compatible. The images being used in the themes are required to be licenced under either one of these licenses.

If the license is not listed here, then it’s not compatible: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses
