On Open Source at DEFCAD
August 21, 2022
The political innocence of the artists at work in our community is a given. 3D gun developers draw firstly from their familiarity with computers and design software, and not from a common ideology.
No doubt zoomer social distress and alienation is the great motor of the guncad struggle. Because this play struggle can be unpredictable, driven by personality disorder, and lack political orientation, we militants at DEFCAD have built organizational and aesthetic buffers to protect the commons. Among these is an enforcement of free and open source licenses for files contributed by the public and our creator partners.
The DEFCAD TERMS OF SERVICE, Sections 2 and 3, as well as the DEFCAD CONTENT DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT, Section 3, require uploaders and partners to expressly declare their uploads are licensed open source, and that they disclaim any legal power that might be used to prevent the FOSS use of these files.
By these terms our site upholds the most original and important of our community's norms.
