Following the discussions and debate with 'Sad face' and the #Thingiverse
/ eBay +Louise Driggers
I'm trying to work out if this last part of the new post by Michael Weinberg is correct - (the part about the Sad face image being CC licensed) - I am convinced that only the 3D Model file is being submitted under the CC license to Thingiverse and that all images and photography retain full copyright by Loiuse.
You can download is the STL - You have to take the image by right clicking - it's not listed as a part of the 'things files'
Because Just3DPrint are using other people's images and photography, they are breaking copyright. They seem to want to debate CC licenses and ignore copyright, their latest responses on Thingiverse are shocking.
To be fair I just asked Michael on Twitter, and he has now asked Louise for permission, so that's a tiny result. Now if only everyone was nice and asked the designer for permission and respected the license and wishes before they started doing whatever they liked.
We do have fair use for blog posts and news articles - but the main point here is - Don't assume a 3D File with CC license is also for everything else.http://michaelweinberg.org/post/139675844685/the-plight-of-thing-1350837-continued
