    Matt Mullenweg (Wordpress) is rather annoyed with Wix as they appear to have used Wordpress' code without respecting the license under which it was released.
    Matt's posted at length and with updates here:
    The Wix Mobile App, a WordPress Joint

    Wix's CEO and others are trying to argue that they aren't in breach of the license (the GPL) but many in the open source community would disagree
    The GPL allows you to make modifications etc., but you have to release everything you create under the same license (basically) GNU General Public License v3 (GPL-3) Explained in Plain English - TLDRLegal
