It’s great that Microvellum came round on this. It looks like they made a really nice product out of blender and there is nothing wrong with that if they give credit and respect the gpl. I could have used this when designing the remodeling of my house.

Let´s not forget this:

Aw, cute post and great news!

And that’s before I checked and saw that Diamond sponsor level is 250 euro a month.
The big deal is having a developer working professionally on these tools and releasing them to the open, but that’s not a bonus to sneeze at. Kudos indeed!

Ton’s tweet was factual and not saying they were bad guys, I don’t see why others read negativity into it.

@PhysicsGuy - theres no need to credit anyone, only follow the GPL.
However if you want to get existing devs/community on board with your project and work together, it may be sensible to give credit to blender, but anyone can fork blender and call it something else if want theres nothing wrong with that.

I know they don’t have to give credit, that is why I said it is great they give credit and respect the gpl. Although now I see that my phrasing was ambiguous at best. What I meant was: great to see that besides respecting the gpl (because they say they will make the aource available and such) they also give credit. As opposed to: great they show that they respect the gpl by giving credit.

Besides this, I think that even though it is not required under the gpl, it is somehow decent.

ooooooooooh snap
