This event will explore the impact of 3D printing technology on IP protection in the manufacturing sector. Advances in additive manufacturing technologies, coupled with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), provide tremendous opportunities for increased efficiency, productivity, and flexibility. But the unauthorized reproduction of manufactured goods using 3D printing also creates novel IP and competitiveness challenges for manufacturers and policy makers. Do the risks outweigh the rewards? How do manufacturers optimize the benefits of these new and evolving technologies while also protecting their IP? Event speakers will discuss these and other opportunities and challenges for American manufacturers seeking to enhance and protect their intellectual property.
