Penn State Offers Course on Legal Issues in AM

July 29, 2019

When you have the freedom to create anything, how do you protect your design, and how do you ensure that you are not violating an existing intellectual property? When it comes to additive manufacturing, such concerns are intensifying, according to officials at Penn State College of Engineering, where a new graduate course, Legal Issues in Additive Manufacturing, addresses these issues. 

“Additive manufacturing is creating new ethical dilemmas that companies have to wrestle with," says Timothy W. Simpson, director of the school’s Additive Manufacturing and Design (AMD) graduate program. "Therefore, we have to prepare our AMD students for those challenges, especially when they take on leadership roles within companies seeking to exploit AM.”
