    What was the reference to Envato in the first question?

      The default license on Envato is a Split license. So only legally required parts of those themes are GPLed. It seems to me that you can’t legally resell those themes as a whole or share them with a friend. Redistributing them would require the removal of certain parts e.g. CSS, graphics, javascript etc., which are covered by a separate proprietary license. Removing those parts renders themes blank basically. Themes hosted on WordPress.org have to be 100% GPLed including assets, more than would be legally required for distributing them elsewhere.

      Some people weren’t allowed to speak at or organise Wordcamps who sold their themes under this split-license. See also: https://designcrumbs.com/automatically-blackballed/

      By now it is possible to sell 100% GPL Themes on Envato.
