- Everyone should always read the tos. Didn't anyone read the tinkercad, or 123d catch tos?Sep 20, 2012
- I read the 123D catch ToS and that's why I don't use it. SpinScan produces better results anyhow.Sep 20, 2012
- Of course everyone should read the TOS, but I'm not a lawyer and typically there's nothing worthwhile there anyway. There's just those few times though where a company really wants to screw you, and its unfortunate they hide it behind so much legalese.Sep 20, 2012
- I can confirm that the ToS (at least Section 3.2 and 3.3) have not changed since at least February 2012, when I printed and reviewed the Thingiverse ToS, along with all other 3D printing and capture ToS, in a series of blog posts.Sep 20, 2012
- The people getting their feathers ruffled over 3.2 in the thingiverse TOS just seem to jump at the granting license part. The paragraph specifically states that it is solely for the purpose of displaying on thingiverse. I do agree with the people wishing to create an alternative with github backend though. Thingiverse is in some dire need of better features/layout, etc.Sep 20, 2012
- Marcus had a great reply from W. Craig Trader WRT 'moral rights':
So in this case, MBI is saying "The purpose of Thingiverse is allow people to share things (and parts of things) with the specific intent to allow others to reuse them in their own designs, in whole or in part." This is why they removed the All Rights Reserved attribution at the same time.
This is a Good Thing.
