Online CLE 3D Printing

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE 3D Printing Webinar. For the past years, 3D printing has significantly revolutionized the business industry as it provides innovations and improvement to pre-existing processes. It has become more accessible to consumers and businesses, drastically transforming the way industries operate. However, its pervasive use poses a great challenge to intellectual property owners as the copyrighted and patented objects may be reproduced by anyone that can obtain the print files, which may lead to infringement of IP rights.  Industries who heavily rely on 3D printing should ensure compliance with existing IP laws to avoid potential violations.

In this Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the legal implications of 3D printing in the evolving IP landscape. Speakers will also share best practices and practical tips to avoid potential legal pitfalls.

Key topics include:

  • The 3D Printing Industry: An Overview
  • Legal Implications to the IP Landscape
  • Latest Trends and Developments
  • Best Practices for Applying Existing IP Laws and Practical Tips to Avoid Pitfalls
  • What Lies Ahead

George C. Lewis, P.E.PartnerMerchant & Gould P.C.

As a professional engineer turned intellectual property attorney, George emphasizes developing and managing patent and trademark portfolios to support the business goals of his clients. Whether coordinating the IP clearance and protection for a new product or handling the ongoing management of an existing corporate intellectual property portfolio that spans multiple product lines, George focuses on creating a coordinated portfolio of IP assets (encompassing patent, trade secret, trademark and copyright protection as appropriate) that supports his clients' strategic business plans and goals.

Drawing on his extensive experience as an engineer in research, design, operations and project management, George develops and integrates IP protection programs that suit his clients and their products, business models, and markets to aggressively protect their market positions and provide a strong foundation for future growth. Because of his diverse experience and his training in both electrical and chemical arts, George is uniquely suited to assist clients in responding to the modern IP challenges confronting corporate counsel, challenges that include not only protecting a company's core business and brands, but also must address IP issues associated with the ancillary technologies and corporate functions necessary to a modern business, such as manufacturing techniques, environmental concerns, IT infrastructure, business methods, internet presence, and supply chain management.
