Date: Friday 24 March 2017
Time: 10.00am - 5pm
Venue: EB708, Executive Business Centre, Bournemouth University
Additive Manufacturing or 3D printing as it is more commonly known, continues to push the boundaries of Intellectual Property (IP) law whilst raising questions relating to the protection and exploitation of IP.
This challenge, which extends to the lucrative jewellery sector raises further questions in relation to creativity, design, copyright and licensing.
This event, which builds on the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) Commissioned Study on 3D Printing and IP law, led by Bournemouth University (BU) during 2013-2014 (reports published in 2015), will explore some of these questions by bringing together experts from the cultural and business sectors including designers, manufacturers, distributors, policy makers and legal professionals.
The event will also provide the platform for a discussion of the 'Going for Gold' project carried out by researchers at CIPPM (Bournemouth University) in collaboration with Museotechniki Ltd and Uformia AS.
This multi-disciplinary event will be complemented by an exhibition of 3D printed jewellery artefacts which will be on display at the event.
