Who owns your 3D printed things anyway? by Paul Rubell

Great post by Paul Rubell about 3D printing copyright. Interesting read!

I enjoy 3d printing. Creating artwork, designing functional products, writing code to instruct a printer how, when and where to extrude its molten lava. 3d printing has become a great consumer hobby as well as a sophisticated additive manufacturing technique with innumerable industrial and medical applications today and into the future.

3-dimensional printing allows you to clone an existing object and to change its very nature. An object made of metal can be copied in lightweight plastic. An object with a weak support structure can be copied with greater tensile strength and durability. Yellow-colored objects can be copied with green substrates. Materials can be varied, examined, tested without impairing the structural integrity of the original. Objects that were expensive for manufacturers to design and build can be quickly, easily and inexpensively copied in the comfort of your basement or on a larger scale, on the factory floor.
