3D Printing, Intellectual Property and Innovation –Insights from Law and Technology

Publisher: Kluwer Law Int. Date of publication: October 2017

Description: 3D Printing, Intellectual Property and Innovation –Insights from Law and Technology is the first and currently only existing book to discuss 3D printing (or additive manufacturing) from a multidisciplinary perspective that encompasses law, economics, engineering, technology, and policy. The book is a collection of peer-reviewed chapters written by twenty-five legal, technical and business experts, evaluating the tensions created by 3D printing technology in the context of our global economy. The book is intended to increase knowledge and understanding of the developing phenomenon of 3D printing by proposing academically and practically valuable solutions to some of the most urgent challenges that the technology poses in the context of business, law (with a focus on IP law) and policy. As such, it is a must read for a variety of audiences, including innovation economists, companies, engineers, artists and designers operating within the 3D printing ecosystem, as well as academics, IP practitioners, patent attorneys, legislators and policymakers.
