Because people don't know how to abide by creative licenses, give credit, not sell for profit, compete with me on etsy.. I'm deleting all my 3D models and stamping the ones that remain. unless thingiverse starts taking legal action or starts protecting designers. This seems like the only solution. Sorry guys
Please use #3dleftshark when posting pics or discussing this model to raise awareness.
