I'm developing a theme for a friend, and I'm not sure what to put for the author, author uri, etc. Here is the Twenty Ten code:

/*
Theme Name: Twenty Ten
Theme URI: http://wordpress.org/
Description: The 2010 default theme for WordPress.
Author: wordpressdotorg
Author URI: http://wordpress.org/
Version: 1.0
Tags: black, blue, white, two-columns, fixed-width, custom-header, custom-background, threaded-comments, sticky-post, translation-ready, microformats, rtl-language-support, editor-style, custom-menu (optional)

License:
License URI:

General comments (optional).
*/
  • For Author, is that the blog owner, or the theme creator?
  • Author URI, is that the blog owner's personal website, or the creator's?
  • License & License URI, these are not open source. How do I specify that?

Prince's answer is technically true, but doesn't answer your specific questions. In the interest of getting you to learn more about WordPress, I'll get those:

For Author, is that the blog owner, or the theme creator?

This should represent the theme author/creator.

Author URI, is that the blog owner's personal website, or the creator's?

Again, if the author = theme creator, this should then be the theme creator's web site.

License & License URI, these are not open source. How do I specify that?

You can specify whatever you want, but themes inherit the WordPress and parent theme licenses. Learn more:

only thing required is

/*
Theme Name: Twenty Ten
*/
