3D printing's forthcoming legal morass

3D printing's forthcoming legal morass | Open Design | Scoop.it

 

This has all the makings of an epic and surreal legal battle. You thought Hollywood and record labels were powerful lobbyists, crushing Napster and suing file-sharers?

 

Last winter, Thomas Valenty bought a MakerBot -- an inexpensive 3D printer that lets you quickly create plastic objects. His brother had some Imperial Guards from the tabletop game Warhammer 40,000, so Valenty decided to design a couple of his own Warhammer-style figurines: a two-legged war mecha and a tank.

 

He tweaked the designs for a week until he was happy. "I put a lot of work into them," he says. Then he posted the files for free downloading on Thingiverse, a site that lets you share instructions for printing 3D objects. Soon other fans were outputting their own copie

Yes we're open info | NIMk

Yes we're open info | NIMk | Open Design | Scoop.it

Openness – as a theme, in form and as a quality – is central in 'Yes, we’re open'. What can a term like openness mean in art today, and in an internet society? Currently people regard the internet as an 'open' and free medium for the distribution of massive quantities of information, but at the same time politics and commerce meddle with it to an unbelievable degree. The internet has its boundaries, literally and figuratively, and is not infinite. On the other hand, the internet has also contributed immensely to a more or less successful effort toward achieving the transparency and openness that the public wants to see on the part of businesses and organizations. The question of copyright, which is playing a more complex and prominent role in the present era, is also related to this. How does this issue influence art and artists?
