Hi,

I am new here. It is my first thread. My question is.

Can we create Wordpress Theme from free HTML template(open source) and then sale that WP Theme here on themeforest? Is it legal?

Thanks

FinalDestiny and rongcon, Thanks for your reply.

Then how a programer who is not good with designing a template can make a WP theme and that themeforest accepts?

Could a theme created with bones will be accepted or not? http://themble.com/bones/
