WASHINGTON, DC — On Wednesday, April 24th, representatives of Nova Labs Erik Moon and Amar Zumkhawala presented at the Public Knowledge event “3D Printing: Bits to Atoms,” held at the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill.
The event sought to connect policymakers and entrepreneurs using 3D printing technology to innovate new products and services. Public Knowledge warns that as the disruptive nature of 3D printing becomes more apparent, incumbent interests could use IP law to shut it down.
