From that article:
1) The primary indication of whether a new program is a derivative
work is whether the source code of the original program was used,
modified, translated or otherwise changed in any way to create the new
program. If not, then I would argue that it is not a derivative work.
So if they start from a GPL theme as a starting point, and then use
and modify that source code, it is a derivative work. Right?
