    Until now, a company's product cycle involved a familiar timeline of discrete milestones: design, prototyping, production, launch, supply chain management, etc. But 3D printing and scanning are transforming how businesses bring their products to market, by collapsing these distinct phases into one fluid spectrum. Because 3D printing and scanning blur the lines between application and expression, these technologies raise a host of IP legal issues. There are few guideposts that can serve as reliable indicators of how existing law will treat these innovations, however it is not clear which practitioners will be liable—the printer, the seller, the manufacturer, etc.

    Join our esteemed panel as they:
    • Explore the shift in production cycles across a wide range of material industries fueled by the advent of affordable, high quality 3D printing
    • Identify the legal hurdles associated with the new blurry line between application and expression, in a time when an average consumer can physically reproduce intellectual property they don't own the rights to
    • Summarize the state of the 3D printing industry with regards to various copyright laws and acts in place such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
