Intellectual Property Challenges for the 3D Printing Revolution

Policy makers, legal professionals, patent creators, regulatory officials, and 3D printing advocates are encouraged to join us at 3D Printing Politics as we explore recent questions raised about the relationship between creativity, law, and 3D printing. Attendees will help shape thinking on key intellectual property issues raised by 3D printing, including digital piracy of physical goods, lessened control of trade secrets, and current litigation. In a series of panels, keynotes, and discussions, 3D additive manufacturing and legal experts will converge to analyze how this exciting growing industry will challenge the status quo. Sessions will cover a range of topics and ultimately answer the question: is the current intellectual property system prepared to handle widespread distributed manufacturing? 3D Printing Politics has also partnered with the Licensing Executives Society International to help encourage conversation about the relationship between 3D and policy.
