What is "weaponry model risks"?

In the Multimedia section, I'm not understanding "Consultation around 3D licensing and weaponry model risks continues".

I don't have the context, and can't parse this in any way that leads me to an obvious answer. Is this about creating visual models of weapons? Can we get a link to the consultation? Thanks!

Yes, there are two concerns. One is regarding the uploading of 3d files of objects that are under patent. The other is of objects that are purposefully weapons (like gun parts).

We attempted to reach out to the Commons community with concerns: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2017/08#Wikilegal_post_on_3D_files_and_3D_printing

Which references the recent Legal team's post regarding this issue.

The Multimedia team is now working on some possible interface updates that will include langue to address these concerns. More information forthcoming.

(I'll add some links to the status update entry to clarify).
