On April 16, 2012 The Copyright Society of the USA NY Chapter presented: Enter the Third Dimension (Whether You Like It or Not): The Practical and Legal Ramifications of 3D Printing at The Princeton Club in NYC.
Description: 3D printing, a technological development which may ultimately permit local and even personal on-demand automated manufacturing of goods, has the potential to drastically alter long-standing norms of manufacturing, transportation, and even consumer demand. Is such a potentially disruptive development a net positive or negative? What will be its ultimate consequences, intended or unintended? And how will the law handle – for good or ill – these developments in coming years? This session began with a brief overview of the technology from one of its leading manufacturers. After that, the esteemed panelists discussed some of the legal and business related queries that are sure to arise as 3D printing grows in popularity.
