    As long as that is what you call it. a "mod" and give credit to the creator of the theme.

    Good luck

    Stelv - you better make sure you ask the people whose work you are modifying and redistributing and give credit to those same people

    Sent from my Original Droid using the Exclusive Droid Forums App (Available Free in the Market) :wink:

    Thank you. I better not modify an existing theme. As a Graphic Designer I can understand one not wanting people to modify ones work. Maybe I'll make one from scratch then....if I can, lol.
