▶ A3. Can I remove the copyright text in the footer?
We strongly recommend that you don’t. It’s the only thing we ask in return for all our hard work over this FREE theme. Don’t expect any kind of support from us if you remove it without our approval.
▶ A4. But I really need to remove the copyright. I’m doing this site for my employer/company/grandmother and I have to. Is there no other way?
By removing the copyright link you’re killing Mantra. You’re responsible. There’s blood all over your hands.
So… wanna make it up a bit? Plant a tree. Adopt a stray dog. Or make a donation to us and list your site in the description.
If you're going to use that theme, give them credit dude. It's only right. You didn't make it, they did. If the copyright stuff isn't acceptable to your customer you'll need to find something else or create your own theme.
