   THE   MVAKINGS OF AN 'INDIVIDUALIZED-INDUSTRIAL'

             ON  INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW

                             Abstract

       Three Dimensional  (3D) Printing, or what is also referred to
as Additive Manufacturing, is a process of making three-
dimensional solid objects from (generally) a digital file. In addition
to its amazing potential, what is outstanding about this technology is
that it will be accessible to most in the near future. This accessibility
pertains to the machines and materials that are used for printing as
well as to the ability to create such objects and to share object files
digitally. It has the hallmarks of a new industrial revolution; which I
refer to here as the Individualized-Industrial Revolution (i.e. the I.I.
Revolution). As such, the conventional intellectual property system
will soon come face to face with the great challenge that is posed by
this new field. This paper explains why this challenge to intellectual
property is three dimensional: the technological-industrial; the com-
mercial-social; and the legal-regulative. In this research paper, that is
part of a larger research project, I identify these challenges and pro-
pose conceptual approaches to dealing with them.
