Check this http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Free-State-govt-spends-R140m-on-website-20130304 The site is http://www.freestateonline.fs.gov.za/ (but it’s very slow now) Quite sad news considering how things are going in Africa and they could use that money better, but still, congratulation to Skyali and his Live London theme, I hope they at least bought extended license ;)

Hahah, and the theme they use is named after a city in england lol.

They should arrest the ones who spend, and who charged it for such a website. Because this is just plain criminal

This is interesting given I haven’t received any “Extended License” purchase for this. I wonder if this is a violation of that? Given they’re using my theme aswell as using a 1.2 version which is 3 versions out of date. I’d have to question their purchase.

skyali, why would you receive any extended licence purchase? This is one-use website. :P Congrats though. :)

How is that? Did he not buy a regular licence? That’s 70% of $40. It is not nothing. :) He bought your theme and sold it for more money. Almost all buyers do that, the only difference here is a couple of $$.

I don’t see any reason for you to complain. You are selling your theme for $40-$45 and that’s it. If someone buys it and makes millions of it, its not because of your work, its because of them. :)
