if it didn't cause confusion this whole thread wouldn't have happened. so indeed it caused confusion.I thought most people already knew this.
It's what happens when you don't specify the use case.
I don't think anyone there would need a backlash because 99% of the plugins devs in this thread got confused.
Also, it's will be my on a touch of the harsh artist :
If you post something and you get criticized because it provoked an uproar or confusion don't get mad. a studio / artist whatever have to expect those things. Not all is praise.
I may have been harsh in my word but as I said to the studio directly I apologized because it took me and many people by surprises.
Especially yes it's said in the TOS but it's wasn't announced clearly and TBH it's preferable I took the shot there than wait MULTIPLE months that someone discovers it or the studio went with a cease and desist on a plugin dev. (don't expect a user to read TOS half of the people wouldn't it's the internet)
then the thing would have gone ugly....and when I say ugly this would have been way way harsher than some comment it would have been said in this thread.
Trust me this make everything way painless for the both end.
Regardless I am happy it was clarified and that now we can avoid stupid drama explosion who involve Legal issue.
as I said to the twitter I will try to support the studio when it come to it.
