Additive manufacturing or ‘3D printing’ has emerged into the mainstream in the last few years, with much hype about its revolutionary potential as one of latest ‘disruptive technologies’ following the Internet. This lecture will examine 3D printing from a socio-legal perspective, looking at how various areas of law – including intellectual property, product liability, gun laws, data privacy and fundamental/constitutional rights – interact with 3D printing, and comparing this to the Internet’s legal encounter before it.
This seminar will be followed by the booklaunch of ‘Socio-Legal Aspects of the 3D Printing Revolution’ by Angela Daly (Palgrave, 2016).
