Legal and Policy Considerations of Intellectual Property in 3D Printing

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office will host a public conference on the Legal and Policy Considerations of Intellectual Property in 3D Printing on Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at USPTO Headquarters in Alexandria Virginia. 

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material by a materials printer using digital technology. Additive manufacturing is used in the fields of jewelry, footwear, architecture, engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many others.  Perhaps more than most new technologies, 3D printing raises a host of intellectual property questions. 

The conference will bring together industry leaders and practitioners to discuss and consider the ways in which intellectual property will protect new innovations, designs, creations, and brands in a 3D printing world.

Join us to hear some of the leading voices in the field discuss intellectual property law and policy in the context of this rapidly evolving technology. The program has been accredited by the Virginia State Bar for 4.0 general CLE credits.
