Date: 24 September 2021. Professor Dinusha Mendis will be an invited speaker at the Singapore Technology Law Festival 2021 (TechLawFest). Together with panellists, Dr Stanley Lai (Head of Intellectual Property, Allen & Gledhill LLP, Singapore), Mr. Benjamin Gaw (Director, Drew and Napier LLC, Singapore) and Mr. Chia Hock Lai (Co_Chairman, Blockchain Association of Singapore), Professor Dinusha Mendis will explore the copyright implications of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and what it means for the future of IP law.

Drawing on the results of a project completed for the European Commission, the talk will consider the IP implications arising from 3D printing and 3D scanning, with particular focus on copyright and cultural organisations. In doing so, the presentation will give an insight into the IP implications surrounding the 3D printing and scanning process, from the perspective of designing a CAD file to sharing, printing and distributing it.

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are essentially tradeable jpegs or gifs. Unlike physical collectables, an NFT owner will not be able to display the asset in their home – except on a screen. They might think they could display it on a website, but this isn’t necessarily the case.

In this context, the chapter will, first, consider the legal status of a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) file within the context of registered and unregistered design, before proceeding to consider the implications presented through infringement and possible exceptions available for users.

This book is the first to carry out an in-depth study in to the interaction between Universities and Copyright Collecting Societies (CCS) in the UK in light of technological advances. It also considers a case-study in to the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) and looks in to the licensing system under the Higher Education Copying Accord (HECA).

The book, which will be presented in two parts, aims to provide an in-depth consideration of the intellectual property implications of 3D printing in Part I, before moving on to a consideration of the legal and intellectual property challenges posed by future and emerging technologies in Part II.

In preparation for the autumn transition to online teaching of most IP courses, the UK Intellectual Property Awareness Network (IPAN) and the US Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU),  held a first, well attended (70 registrants), international Zoom workshop on July 8th to share good practice and practical tips amongst IP educators.

The 2019 edition focused on Copyright and AI, Brexit, legal tech and copyright, funding of copyright claims as well as legal case law and legal updates.

Professor Dinusha Mendis from the Department of Humanities and Law at Bournemouth University explored the copyright issues surrounding technologies such as 3D printing and 3D scanning and offered a number of insights from her recent research including insights from her recently published co-edited book, 3D Printing and Beyond: Intellectual Property and Regulation.

This chapter begins with an analysis of the protection of 3D models as artistic works. In doing so, the chapter draws a line through history, taking the reader on a journey from the Engravings Copyright Act 1735 to the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Thereafter the chapter moves to a consideration of another component of the 3D printing process – the CAD design file, which acts as a ‘vessel’ to encapsulate a 3D model.
