3D Printing is quickly changing the world. How will this exploding industry and these machines, which in theory can create anything, affect Intellectual Property?
In this presentation John Hornick, a recognized thought leader in the 3D printing space, will explore the intersection between 3D printing and intellectual property. Along with examples of advances in 3D printing and materials, John will address questions, such as:
• How will the democratization of manufacturing affect IP?
• Can protection from infringement be balanced with the ability to innovate?
• Does IP stimulate or stifle innovation in the 3D Printing space?
• Is the existing IP regime up to the task, or is IP fundamentally in conflict with a 3D printed world?
• How is IP special in the 3D printing space?
• Who will win the tug of war between IP and open innovation?
• Will IP survive, or are we headed for a worldwide open technology community?
Who should attend:
Intellectual Property Attorneys. Corporate Counsel. Arts and Entertainment Attorneys. General Counsel. Anyone who wants to learn more about the exploding world of 3D Printing and it’s legal implications.
