General Public License

I learned that the GPL, also known as the General Public License, is the software license used by WordPress. This license was specifically chosen because it aligns with the philosophy and values of the WordPress project, which is to promote the use of free and open-source software. It's great to see companies like WordPress supporting the open-source community and making their software accessible to everyone.

The GNU General Public License to guarantee users 4 freedoms

  • The freedom to run the software for any purpose.
  • The freedom to study the source code and change the software for any purpose.
  • The freedom to share the software with others.
  • The freedom to share your own modified versions of the software with others.
