Reselling a wordpress theme

I have a good idea for a theme but don’t want to create one from scratch its lengthy and expensive. I was wondering can I use WordPress twenty twelve theme as a base for my theme and build of that?

Since most WordPress themes are gpl I don’t see a problem. Does Envato require the theme to be created from scratch to be accepted in to the market.

Most WP experts say its fine to customize and resell twenty twelve or any other free WordPress theme.

If you need a good starter theme, use _s

Hi I like it. Any other start themes you’d recommend? Would themeforrest allow an enhanced 2012 theme to be resold?

Is this starter theme responsive? or would I need to implement that?
