    I understand that this was written in 2010? it does not work for me. I did it only on 1 site and when I tried to implement it on other blog, I cannot remove this footer link. Both are newly made sites.

    Okay..I will try it. Does it require to have a developers license?

    • Nabeel

      i don’t think so (you should read their license terms to make sure)

      however, they are breaching wordpress license, so they can’t claim their licenses anyway,
