This edited book will consider the legal and intellectual property (IP) implications relating to 3D printing and emerging technologies from the perspective of UK, USA and Australia.
The book, which will be presented in two parts, aims to provide an in-depth consideration of the intellectual property implications of 3D printing in Part I, before moving on to a consideration of the legal and intellectual property challenges posed by future and emerging technologies in Part II. As such, the book will set out some of the most pressing challenges for intellectual property in the present times, as a result of 3D printing before moving on to a consideration of the future by discussing not only intellectual property, but also other legal challenges (i.e., contractual, privacy, ethical issues) as a result of emerging technologies with the focus kept firmly on the three chosen jurisdictions.
