Starting today, all future free HTML/CSS templates (both new designs and updates of previous releases) will be released under a Creative Commons CC-BY license. It will not mean any difference in terms of how the templates can be used, modified and redistributed, as the templates will remain free to download, free to use for both commercial and non-commercial purposes and free to modify and redistribute. The only difference in practice will be that attribution must be given when the templates are used or redistributed. By using an established license, there will be no more confusion about copyrights, limitations and the legal status of the designs.
