It Will Be Awesome if They Don’t Screw it Up: 3D Printing, Intellectual Property, and the Fight Over the Next Great Disruptive Technology

Absolutely--we need to act now to protect an innovative and vibrant future from dinosaurs who won't want to adapt. This is why I am running as the first federal candidate for the Pirate Party of Canada--to provide leadership in learning to ride the technological tidal wave instead of trying to fight it. I'm posting with my party contact info but you all here at Shapeways know me as the owner of Terra Cotta Personal Fabricators. The worlds of 3D printing and intellectual property law are inextricably intertwined, and if we don't stand up for the future we want to see the policies will instead be written by those who want to stop it. Strong words, but a fact our community needs to face if we hope to launch the Next Big Thing.
