Three-Dimensional Printing and Open Source Hardware | Journal of Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law (JIPEL)

Three-Dimensional Printing and Open Source Hardware | Journal of Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law (JIPEL) | Open Hardware | Scoop.it
This Article shows how the maturing technology of three-dimensional printing can be used to construct an enforceable open hardware license. Open hardware lacks the legal tools which allow the easy implementation of enforceable open source software licenses. As such, existing licenses cannot successfully implement open hardware principles. The author proposes the “Three-Dimensional Printing Open License” (the “TDPL”). The TDPL draws on the unique characteristics of three-dimensional printing to construct a license that incorporates enforceable documentation, attribution and copyleft provisions. As the technology of three dimensional printing improves and is gradually integrated into a broad range of industries, the scope of the license’s application will increase.

Brief History of Open Source Hardware Organizations and Definitions |

As the open source hardware community grows it has become increasingly common for researchers and reporters to ask us about the history of the movement. However, this is a difficult question to answer since open source hardware’s history is made up of many stories, the stories of people, companies and organizations all over the world who, over the last 10 years, chose to work openly and share their knowledge with others. Given the difficulty in identifying and describing all the contributions to the movement, we decided to tackle a smaller task: the history of OSHW-related organizations and definitions, which is now available on the OSHWA website.
