Confused about General Public License for Theme

HI! I paid a lot of money for a theme. There site says that you can install the theme on as many websites as you want but when I asked the representative after paying for it about selling the website with the theme on it. They told me that the new owner will have to pay for another theme which comes with a license each time I sell a site with that theme on it. Can they do this. This makes no sense to me if they're using the general public license for the theme. I don't know anything about general public licensing but can they do this. Do I have to have the owner re-buy the theme on the site when they purchase the site to get the licensing. The do not offer separate licenses or a developing themes. All their themes are under the general public licensing. If this is true I will not make much money if the new owner has to pay for this also or even if the price is inserted withing the sale price of the website.

    GPL on a paid theme ? Sounds wierd.

    The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works.

    The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free software for all its users.
