For start, because the design is not yours.

Of course you can do that as long as you HAVE PERMISSION from the author of that WordPress theme.

Will you be happy if someone will get your theme on which you spent a month or more of your life working hard, and then he spent just couple of days on creating a HTML template to “make big profit” with it just for himself?

No, no permission. Author of WP theme must not know from it.

I sooooo confused now. I see HTML template from good selling theme on front page right now. I’ve seen Facebook and Twitter messages from author from HTML template. He says: We’re going to make WP theme now. But WP theme is already for sale. I sooooo confused now.

Where is ThemeForest police? He should answer.

Ok, ok, you got me! Just a troll message. I’ll inform the ThemeForest Police Dept about it.
