What is GPL? General Public License

GPL or General Public License, sometimes also called GNU GPL, is the most commonly used free software license. It was written by Richard Stallman of Free Software Foundation for the GNU Project. This license allows the software to be freely used, modified, and redistributed by anyone.

WordPress is also released under the GPL license, which means that WordPress is open-source software that can be used, modified, and extended by anyone.

The WordPress project considers GPL license to be its philosophical equivalent of the bill of rights. It provides the core basic values that the project believes in.

  • One can download and run the software
  • You can modify it
  • Everyone can redistribute free copies of the software
  • Anyone can distribute modified versions of the software.

One of the primary aspects of the GPL is that it uses something known as copyleft. Copyleft is a play on the word copyright, but the concept is very similar. Basically, it uses copyright law to protect modified versions of work but requires the same protections to be applied to those versions.

For this reason, any work based on WordPress inherits the GPL license.
