Is “exposure” enough payment & German channel?

This episode starts with the question of whether content creators should have to license 3D printable models that others released under a non-commercial license or if the exposure alone is enough “payment”. If you would license your creation how would you even do that? Then there are rumors that Anet, the infamous maker of the Anet A8 is gone from the market. Next Tom and Stefan talk about the recently announced date for ERRF and if they consider going. Stefan asks himself if he killed his first stepper driver and Tom explains how that even is possible. Stefan talks about his plans on launching a German channel and if this might be worth the effort. Staying on the topic of running a channel, both discuss if video sponsors are good or bad for creators and content. Questions cover adding a pattern into a nozzle and if PLA really biodegrades in a home compost.
