The State Department has asked Defense Distributed to take down its controversial 3D-printed gun blueprint. “I immediately complied and I’ve taken down the files,” said the group’s Cody Wilson. “But this is a much bigger deal than guns. It has implications for the freedom of the web.”
This is archaic and naive almost to the point of being twee.
There’s no way that Cody Wilson removing the files will make any difference if they have already been downloaded thousands of times from different sources.
They have no grasp of what they are dealing with or to address it.
If you received this type of letter from a private organisation you did business with then you would never consider using them for any advice or consultation again.
I read it and think ‘so what?’
