What is the technical definition of a derivative work in layman's terms?
Why is a theme considered a derivative work of WordPress, if it is
released separately, but dependent on WordPress?
People keep saying GPLv2, but why couldn't I release my code new BSD?
I do release my code new BSD, the HTTP API would also be new BSD, if I
had caught it quick enough. I suppose the issue now is that I would need
permission from Ryan and DD32 + plus a couple of others in order to
change the license. The HTTP API can be used separately from WordPress,
with a few modifications to remove the wp_option code.
(Talk to me like I'm an idiot, because I know nothing)
