Attorneys Present 3D Printing's Impact on the Auto Industry and IP Protection Overview

TROY, MI--(Marketwired - December 18, 2015) - and, the leading global business online education platform, have made available two On-Demand Seminars featuring prominent attorneys' insights into 3D printing's impact on the auto industry as well as an overview of Intellectual Property Protection.

3D printing's likely impact on the auto industry is widely debated. Watch the newly released On Demand Seminar, "Roll Over Gutenberg: New Challenges To IP Owners From 3-D Printing" to hear Jonathan Moskin, Partner with Foley & Lardner, LLP, New York, address not only the great upside benefits of the new technology (in particular, rapid prototyping), but also the risks specific to the auto industry. Moskin believes that precisely because of the ease with which 3D printing and the digitization of the physical products facilitates widespread copying, certain traditional manufacturers may suffer consequences. However, the very companies that might be most at risk to be victimized by the new technology may also find the greatest opportunities from distributed manufacturing on 3D printers. Moskin discusses how manufacturers may be able to get ahead of this wave and provide value-added opportunities to their customers. Moskin, a frequent speaker and widely published author with over 30 years' experience as an intellectual property lawyer, offers practical guidance on how to prepare for the impact of 3D printing in this 1 - hour On Demand Seminar.

Techniques that can be implemented to protect Intellectual Property are presented in Mark Harper's On Demand Seminar, "U.S. Intellectual Property - The Basics". Harper, a Ph.D and Patent Attorney, describes types of intellectual property including Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights and Trade Secrets as well as Aspect of Protection, Legal Requirements, Length of Protection, Scope of Protection, and Limits on IP in this 24-minute On Demand Seminar.
