Of course No.
If you’re going to change the whole design , then why take someone else’s theme :D

You can take a GPL theme, edit and release under your name with a contribution to the original author. That’s completely legal even if the theme is not free and you had to pay for it. Question is if this theme will be approved for sale here on Themeforest.

You can’t do this on the marketplaces. Yes, you could sell it anywhere else, but Envato has clear inhouse rules about this behavior and it’s strictly forbidden. Authors are protected inside the marketplaces even if their items are 100% GPL.

That’s correct, but I’m 99.999% TF wouldn’t allow that. The marketplace would be flooded with rips.

I don’t want to start a war thread again, but what’s the point of releasing your theme as 100% GPL if nobody can continue in your work to make it better but have to start from scratch? :)

There are in house rules.. A war is useless, because these rules are written in the TOS! I don’t have time to search for them now :)

They can do a better product, release it for free or sell it somewhere else but not on TF
