Hi guys, I am working on my 9GAG WordPress clone that will feature the same functionality as 9GAG. Also, the layout will be the same.

My question is, am I allowed to sell exact clones here on ThemeForest or not?

Thank you.

why would anyone want to make a living from selling stolen work? If you are not capable of producing your own work, that would be original, you should try a different job. Copying viral websites could get you into really big troubles. You know that, right?

I guess the chosen nickname is a little ironic. :)

Also the 9LAME used a premade theme as base.

Guys, you are jumping to conclusions here :)

I would not steal anything, it clearly says in their terms and conditions that you need written permission for non-personal use, I am no thief. I am waiting for their reply on the matter, of course I would not be selling other peoples work without permission.
