Changing phpBB?

Post by Roger Moore »

At the bottom of everypage it says "Powered by phpBB". Are we allowed to change this to something else and remove the link to this site?

No, that's the only thing that we have to respect: the copyright note.

Is it really so important for you to remove this note? IMHO it stands for quality. So there is no need to delete it.

If you skip it anyway you won't get any support if there are any problems.

Also I think I'm going to mail copyleft organization asking whether we can demand people to not remove the copyright

NO, NO, I don't want to remove it, I've just come accross a site that has thats all.

I was just wondering if they have broken any copyright laws?
