Gordon & Rees San Francisco partner Kai Peters will participate in a Feb. 21 panel discussion as part of the Hastings Law Journal’s symposium, “The Legal Dimension of 3d Printing."
Peters’ panel, “Regulating 3d Printing: How to Impose Limits on the Theoretically Limitless,” will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law Alumni Reception Center at 200 McAllister St. The other panel members include Keith Murphy, Chairman, CEO and President of Organovo; Andrew Hessel, Autodesk Distinguished Researcher; Reuel Schiller, Professor of Law, University of California Hastings College of the Law; and Marsha Cohen, Professor of Law, University of California Hastings College of the Law.
The day-long symposium will focus on the array of legal issues, new and old, posed by the wide availability of 3D printing technology. For example, how will regulatory bodies address printable organs, medical devices, and printable aircraft? How can regulatory bodies protect patients while not stifling innovation? What are the implications for patent and copyright law?
