This is pretty standard stuff in the forum world; you may want to contact phpBB as well

So 99% of the time, I buy copyright removal on any plugins and such. I normally would create a dedicated “credits” page in the help section displaying copyright to all addons and themes even if I had bought copyright removal or not. I like to show support for developers. I just not a fan of having a thousand links in my footer is all.
However, XenForo being a $250 price tag to do so, I never have done it for XenForo as I own multiple forums. and not really worth the price tag.
With that said, I am looking to do it for one of my forums. Has anyone purchased Copyright Removal for XenForo? I know a lot of people look for that footer link when looking for nulled forums. The last thing I need to be accused of is having a nulled forum after paying $250 for a copyright removal xD
You can’t remove the © without paying but the title the browser shows can be legally changed (I think).
The above was the response to being accused of using blackhat SEO link cloaking techniques to build backlinks to discource.org.
Using black hat SEO link cloaking techniques both risks the discourse.org site and Discourse forum software users!
