EU Par­lia­ment wants to face legal chal­len­ges of 3D prin­ting with new legis­la­ti­on

The Euro­pean Par­lia­ment has recent­ly adop­ted a deci­si­on on 3D prin­ting and the chal­len­ges it poses to intel­lec­tu­al pro­per­ty and civil lia­bi­li­ty and published a report on this (2017/2007(INI)).
More about this from our advi­so­ry coun­cellor Dr. Andre­as Leu­pold LL.M under the fol­lo­wing link.

We would like to thank ever­yo­ne who made this start a suc­cess.

  • metal deve­lop­ment
  • Spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on, Qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on, Gui­de­li­nes
