+1. No-one wants to exercise any kind of pressure. Pressure tends to just
frustrate progress. I understand how you feel about all of this publicness.
No worries.

+1. I very much admire the level of detail, clarity and honesty in your
e-mails so far and also the speediness of your replies and I suspect the
entire harmony community feels the same way. We all dislike all this
worrying about IP and licensing but it is in no way your fault that there
is anything to worry about and you should not feel any kind of guilt.
We're all very appreciative of the effort you're putting in.

You should feel more than free to take all the time you want and/or need
to think about things or talk about them or just put the issue in a freezer
for a few days because you have other important things to do with your time.
Not everything has to happen in "internet time".
