We paid for the code and we were given
a link to download the code to be used as
open source code.  We did not make any

When you consider that the vast majority of Kickstarter funding came from discounted licenses were we finding development or taking advantage of discounts? I personally made one of the highest contributions of everyone to the Kickstarter (US$5000) and believe that has been repaid many times over. It is an incredibly generous thing to release your hard earned intellectual property under an open source licence and I don't think that should be taken for granted.
