Its up to you but if you upload it without permission then the author has the right to complain and have your file removed. Its not about a statement or a license all you need is an email from the auhtor saying they are ok for the plugin to be used
one quick question. so i only need to submit my WordPress theme and i can display these statement to reviewer so they get noticed that i do have write to use this plugin with my theme.
You do not provide ANYTHING to the reviewer – you can just submit the file. the problem only arises if the auhtor of the plugin sees it and has not given his permission and decides to complain
Thanks charlie So i don’t need to place Licensing folder in my theme mail download file. ?
