Not so sure about that.

From a moral standpoint, no, but as far as i know the php code of wordpress themes is gpl licensed. CSS , HTML and JS are protected though.

I’m sure all the happy people in here coded their themes from scratch, not even a copied a line of code from anywhere be it GPL or not.

Around here, or anywhere, you don’t even ASK that – you’d need to have no morals to do this.

The code of your latest theme here, is it yours? How became author here? Do you have ever read the themeforest copyrights about authors here?
