HBO Demands 3-D Printer Cease Making Objects

“The technology has got to where it’s not that expensive. If you’re a manufacturer and people start making their own replacement parts, what does that mean?” ]

Mindful of potential litigation, several startups are developing software to protect designs distributed on 3-D printing sites…. Another startup, Sweden-based, is developing software that would safeguard designs sold on its marketplace. The company plans to negotiate licensing agreements to sell blueprints from corporations that sell everything from toys to movies.

According to The San Jose Mercury News, “so far, 3-D printing disputes have been playing out as cease-and-desist orders — no lawsuits have been filed.”

And, by the way, 3-D printers will soon rule the world.
