In her talk, Angela Daly will explain how existing laws apply to 3D printing. What 3D printing is will be explained, followed by a consideration of 3D printing's interaction with existing areas of law, namely:

  • intellectual property
  • constitutional and fundamental rights
  • product liability
  • medical regulation
  • arms control

Angela Daly will consider how the decentralised nature of 3D printing, along with its personal computer and Internet companions, create the theoretical possibility of less effective enforcement of these laws and regulation. Some thoughts will also be given on how well real-life attempts to regulate 3D printing, through DMCA takedown notices aimed at removing 3DP design files in alleged infringement of others' IP and the legislative responses to the 'Liberator' 3D printed gun controversy have fared. Final comments will be made on whether current legal conceptions in intellectual property, constitutional rights and product liability, for instance, are rendered redundant by the technological advances contained within 3D printing and whether, in light of this, their reconsideration is necessary.

Biografia:

Angela is a research fellow in the Swinburne Institute for Social Research (Australia), primarily conducting research on the legal and social implications of 3D printing, and is also an affiliate of the Swinburne Law School. She has just finished a PhD at the European University Institute (Italy), whose substance concerns the extent to which existing EU law and regulation address concentrations of private economic power which impede free information flows online, to the detriment of Internet users' autonomy. She is also a member of the Australian Privacy Foundation's board of directors.
