    Actually, 'Powered by vBulletin' in the title of the head can also be removed without a branding free license.

              So just for clarifications' sake (please correct me if I'm wrong)...

              1. It is perfectly fine to remove the Powered by vBulletin in the page title, but changing it to something else is discouraged.

              2. This has nothing to do with the copyright in the footer or brand-free license.

                You can changed it to powered by soemthing else, for example, Powered By SoandSo Hosting, etc. But specificly we are talking about changing the branding in the title to "powered by phpbb", ""powered by myownsoftwarename".

                      Actually you can't say 'Powered by Something Else' since this implies that the forum is powered by something other than vBulletin.

                      You can add something about the hosting.

                        wow... ummm, it might be a real good idea if the staff members all get on the same wavelength about this. There's been at least 3 different views/answers/opinions since the original post, and it's confusing people. Really.

                                Yes, you don't need to purchase branding free to have permission to remove the "powered by .." from the TITLE.

                                Yes, you don't need to purchase branding free to have permission to remove the version number from the FOOTER copyright.

                                Yes, you need to purchase branding free to remove the copyright from the footer.

                                No, even with branding free option purchased you are not permitted to rebrand the software as if it is some other software. But yes, you are permitted to place your own copyright to your web site in the footer. This web site is (c) Copyright yoursite.url (or company name).

                                Users who purchase branding free option now can download 3.6.2 and above copies where branding free has been stripped by default.
