Cornwall Street barrister Simon Bradshaw features in a new academic text on 3D printing law, as co-author of a chapter on the issues in trade mark law arising from 3D printing. Published by Edward Elgar Press, 3D Printing and Beyond: Intellectual Property and Regulation gathers legal expertise from the UK, USA and Australia to address the legal questions that arise when objects protected by IP law can be printed from designs shared online.
