WordPress Creator GPL Says WP Template Must Be GPL'd

This is all about various themes that have been developed for WordPress which are not of GPL license.

If I host a blog web site, and the client uses one of these themes that are not GPL licensed, am I liable to be sued by the wordpress creator?

Simple answer to this, if I host blogs. It will not be with word press.

Another reason that I think the BSD license is much better for promoting open source than GPL ever will be. Nazi's versus the true open source.

Posting here because I moderated that story.
