further musing on the licensing and rationale behind making templates, via coyote’s post:
i’m now really bugged by pro-bloggers complaining about the lack of templates. if you’re blogging for money, you should expect to need to hire a designer. despite the shaky-at-best legality of canvas‘ non-comercial license, it makes sense for them to want to release it as such. those guys are designers. if they successfully make every template completely customizable, they’ll be working themselves out of a job. it wouldn’t surprise me if, should they be convinced that they can’t distribute canvas without falling under the GPL, they stop distributing it.
clearly, i need to think about this more.
