Public Knowledge announces today a new whitepaper: What’s the Deal with Copyright and 3D Printing? This paper is a follow up to their previous 3D printing whitepaper: It Will Be Awesome if They Don’t Screw It Up: 3D Printing, Intellectual Property, and the Fight Over the Next Great Disruptive Technology.

The previous “It Will Be Awesome” focused on the broad connection between intellectual property law and 3D printing. And this one whitepaper, “What’s the Deal?” focuses more on the relationship between copyright and 3D printing.

Public Knowledge is releasing What’s the Deal? as a free PDF download and make it available in html.
