Child Theme - does customization affect the license?

axessJosh asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-16
I have been using the Twenty-Ten theme to create child themes for my wordpress sites.  I have essentially taken the TwentyTen theme, changed all the things that I generally adjust for a site and made my own template theme essentially.

My question is, am I in violation of any licensing or anything by completely customizing the theme.  I change the theme name on the style.css file and remove the parent theme links so it doesn't get affected by updates.

Can I do a Find and Replace to change all references to Twenty Ten and still be ok with the GPL license?
