Copy of an Original of a Copy: On 3D Printing


Triple Canopy has just published “Copy of an Original of a Copy,” which, according to them, is “perhaps the world’s most extensive and illuminating conversation about 3-D printing, copyright, telegraphy, Left Shark, and the forms of authorship exercised by algorithms!”

This is an edited—and expanded, footnoted, illustrated—transcript of the conversation Triple Canopy held in April with law professor Edward Lee , art historian Jennifer L. Roberts, artist Allyson Vieira, Triple Canopy editor Alexander Provan, and yours truly. I do hope you enjoy.
