3D Printing Patent Family Landscape 2018

Viewed: 189

This project will provide guidance for industry and policy-makers in respect of intellectual property, 3D Printing, and innovation policy. It will consider the evolution of 3D printing, and examine its implications for the creative industries, branding and marketing, manufacturing and robotics, clean technologies, health-care, and the digital economy. The study will examine how 3D printing will disrupt key regimes of intellectual property – such as copyright law, designs law, trade mark law, patent law, and confidential information. As well as providing practical advice in respect of intellectual property management and commercialisation, this study will offer policy recommendations in respect of domestic and international law reform.
