Shapeways Article – Introduction to Intellectual Property Rights and Protections

3 September, 2015

As August is normally a slow news month for most manufacturers, this seems to be the time when bloggers and journalists are forced to get creative with content and pieces.

Shapeways’ blog has quite cleverly used this time to start a series on intellectual property rights and protections. So far they’ve run two articles– the first on the meaning of the words Copyright, Patent, and Fair Use; the second on the specifics of fair use. It looks to be a useful guide for those who wish to make money out of 3D printing on the internet, so it is straight up our alley.
