No matter if you are rich or not, People always attracted to discounts and free stuff. In the WordPress world, Nulled Plugins are examples of this desire. Not necessarily they are illegal but there are many reasons why we should avoid Nulled Themes and Plugins such as WP ULike Pro nulled. In this article, we will give you 5 solid reasons to persuade you to buy what you need.
What is a Nulled WordPress Plugin?
Before we go further, let’s establish what exactly we are talking about. There are various definitions around the web when it comes to the term nulled. As we define nulled it refers to premium WordPress plugins or themes that have been hacked or contain modified code designed to cause harm or collect information. These are obtained from a third-party website (not the original author or creator) and sometimes are made to work without a license key.
There are other definitions out there for sure, but our emphasis is on hacked or contain modified code and without a license key. With that said, we first answer the elephant question in the room:
Are Nulled Plugins illegal?
Nulled WordPress Plugins and Themes Aren’t Necessarily Illegal. It’s unlikely that the FBI kicks down your door if you use nulled WordPress plugins or themes. That’s because, in contrast to the other content that people usually “pirate” (e.g. music, movies), nulled WordPress plugins and themes are often not breaking the law.
The reason here has to do with the GPL (General Public License). Without making this a lesson on copyright, you just need to know that part of what the GPL license allows for is that anyone can freely distribute GPL-licensed software (yes – even premium GPL-licensed software).
So if a nulled plugin site puts a piece of GPL-licensed software up for download, they’re not technically breaking the law because they have the right to freely distribute that GPL code.
The GPL is a big part of WordPress, and most (but not necessarily all) WordPress plugins and themes use GPL. This is, in part, because themes and plugins must be GPL-compliant in order to be listed in the WordPress.org directory.
While premium plugins aren’t required to have a GPL license, many also have a freemium version on the WordPress repository, which then does a require GPL license. Or they choose to have a GPL license. Many premium plugins such as WP Rocket and Gravity Forms are GPL-licensed.
Friendly Advice: Don’t Use Nulled Extensions on Production Sites
On the surface, it might seem like a great deal to get a premium plugin or theme for free. But in our opinion, it’s just not worth it. Even if you find a source for legal, clean GPL plugins and themes, you’re still going to waste extra time because:
- You’ve to configure and fix everything by yourself since you don’t get access to support.
- You’ve to constantly check for new releases and manually update yourself.
Time is money, and nulled plugins and themes will take you more time to use.
Beyond that, you’re just plain depriving developers of the rewards for the hard work they’ve already put in, as well as money to keep improving their products going forward. Even if you have no problem with the ethical implications there, you’d lose out if everyone used nulled extensions because developers would have no incentive to improve.
So – think twice before installing a nulled plugin or theme. Especially if your building or working on other people’s WordPress sites. Don’t put your client in a bind later down the road.
