I know, it is not like I want to talk behind your back.

You've stated that before in your blog and it does nothing to me to 
clear up the situation. It is no explanation, just a 'bear with us, we 
apologise for any inconvenience'. Which is a shame really, given the 
terrific effort you've put in all this.

The things you could do _now_ are:

- State unequivocally that it was never the intent for MakerBot 
Industries to acquire more rights for itself than the creator of a thing 
was granting to the general public;
- Ask your lawyer why this particular subject needs to be covered to 
begin with since the license options all grant Makerbot Industries the 
rights to use, transmit etc. already.
