Analysis of @just3Dprintit vs @Stratasys by @mweinberg2D / @loubie_3D @thingiverse

Ok! Remember the post from 2016 “3D Printing Maker Community & Copyright Violations” – welp, there was an update that we included from Ryan Simms, Founder, CEO, Just 3D Print – and here’s a post from Michael Weinberg, who looked at the case.

“Intrigued, I decided to investigate further.  At the end of my investigations I have  come to two conclusions.  First, that Just 3D Print’s view of how copyright applies to 3D printing files and objects (and just operates generally) continues to be incorrect. Second, that it is unreasonable to claim that the court in the Stratasys case came to any conclusions regarding copyright infringement or, for that matter, defamation.”

“The entire discussion appears to focus on two questions.  First, the relationship between the person who wrote the article posted on the Stratasys website and Stratasys itself.  Second, the necessity of Stratasys, as opposed to simply a lawyer representing Stratasys, to be present in the courtroom.

Good eye if you noticed that neither of these questions directly relate to the underlying allegation of copyright infringement or the defamatory nature of the articles about those allegations.  

Unfortunately, the court does not really even address either of these preliminary questions.  Instead, apparently frustrated by the discussion of those questions up to that point, 19 minutes in the court summarily cuts off the proceedings and enters a judgment for Just 3D Print.  No real consideration of who published the article. No real consideration of who needs to be in the courtroom.  Absolutely no consideration of infringement or defamation.”

At the end of the post, a mini-how-to on “*How do you get all of the legal documents?” Transcript here.

I think Stratasys should appeal the decision so it get looked at properly.
