I have pdf book “How to be a rockstar WordPress Designer” and in that book you have description how to create one blog and portfolio theme.

I wonder can you sell that theme here on themeforest? Of course with slightly changed design.

The rules say that an item can’t be based on a tutorial, and a book is actually a tutorial, so NO.

But how reviewer would know that theme is based on tutorial? Only if he readed that book he would know.

Well unless you submit it with a different username he will know, you just told him :)

And that book is from Rockable Press which is a part of the Envato network and so are these marketplaces, and it’s quite a popular book so there is a big chance he’ll recognize it :)

Even on the off chance that the reviewer doesn’t recognize the design, he has the eyes and ears of every single author and buyer on ThemeForest constantly looking out for copyright violations. It would last for about 5 minutes.
