Ever since Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed fired the first 3d-printed gun into the world on May 6, 2013, we have thought that hosting such files is one of the best litmus tests for a cloud provider on free speech. We believe code is free speech and has constitutional protection as does firearms so 3d-printed CAD files are protected by two amendments. We won’t get into politics because we can’t, but we have to thank the individuals fighting the good fight on the front lines of free speech, @Ivan_Is_Back, @CtrlPew, @DefDist, and many others.
