The copyright notice

Post by Gunnar » Fri Sep 14, 2007 12:37 am

Hi,

I was wondering if it is okay to remove / modify this line on the bottom of all sites in phpBB 3

No you can't remove it. As far as I know you can add more things to that line but you must retain the original text.

Directly above that in the footer it says this
<!--
We request you retain the full copyright notice below including the link to http://www.phpbb.com.
This not only gives respect to the large amount of time given freely by the developers
but also helps build interest, traffic and use of phpBB3. If you (honestly) cannot retain
the full copyright we ask you at least leave in place the "Powered by phpBB" line, with
"phpBB" linked to http://www.phpbb.com. If you refuse to include even this then support on our
forums may be affected.

Its a small price to pay, I mean they're offering the software free. What more could you want; and you can add more onto it, is it that bad?
