3D printing is increasingly penetrating large-scale manufacturing and small-scale consumer manufacturing. It is beginning to disrupt the law, as it revolutionizes manufacturing and distribution of products, affecting all industries. This presentation explores the penetration of 3D printing in manufacturing and distribution and the evolving legal landscape for the 3D printing industry, including the areas of constitutional law, product liability law, copyright law, trademark law, and patent law.

Please join us over breakfast and a cup of coffee as we discuss 3D printing.

Topics will include:

  • When does 3D printing infringe IP rights?
  • May I distribute 3D design files?
  • May customers use 3D printers to make replacement parts?
  • Who is liable when 3D printed parts fail?
