All such inclusions are automatically authorized for use by the public. Sources include public domain sites and others which allow re-use.

Premium Plugin Purchases

Unfortunately, many modern web site masters seem to be reluctant to purchase software for their web sites. This includes the purchase of premium plugins and themes. Avoiding software purchases is often a mistake. While there may be free tools available, they typically come with limitations. Often support is lacking.

Support is often much better. The development team is motivated to release quality tools. They can promote more sales with a satisfied buyer community. Recommendations of satisfied customers of the tool will often generate sales from their friends an associates. Unhappy customers are detrimental to sales so developers are keen to reduce problems. Providing quality support to users is a business goal.

All successful companies must have their costs covered, and have enough revenue left for profit, if they are to thrive. Software development is a serious industry that provides value to the economy.
