GPL Licence Qestion

Discussion in 'Legal Issues' started by SKULL, Oct 29, 2013.

    If there is a free script online that is under the GPL licence , dos this mean i can modify or rebuild the script? and release for free or paid?

    Also , since its GPL do i have to keep the orginal owners copyright on the script , or may i remove that and add mine since i have modifyed the script or rebuild it.

    No you don't . You only hold copyright on your own code ( the one added ) .

    So , you can't remove the original copyright , but you can add yours on top.
