I downloaded a website template . The template has two versions free and premium . On free versions it is said that - " Only personal use " . What does it mean ? If I make a website with that template and hosting the website , is it crime ? Again , Is it fair to change copyright section in footer ?
You would need to read the Terms of Service or Terms or the license agreement, but typically, personally use means, that you are not trying to use the template for a commercial (for-profit) site. If you are just using it for a portfolio to highlight your yourself, that I would say it is fine. If you plan on selling merchandise or advertising some type of consulting service, then I would say, you could have a problem. Again, you just need to either read their terms or better yet, contact the company and ask directly.
