“A lucid and comprehensive account of the burgeoning field of 3D printing—the technologies, and their implications. Hornick makes a compelling case for why this technology can’t be ignored. A must-read for anyone who wants to see beyond the horizon.”—Hod Lipson, coauthor, Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing
“Hornick explores an exciting possible future where 3D printing has changed the way we design, make, and interact with the world. This book is a great compendium of 3D printing as it is today and what it may become tomorrow.”—Michael Weinberg, former vice president, Public Knowledge/General Counsel, Shapeways
“Hornick has written a terrific and much needed guide and explanation on the uses and possibilities of 3D Printing.”—Alan Meckler, Meckler Media, producer of Inside 3D Printing Conferences and Trade Shows
“John has assembled a comprehensive assessment of this rapidly growing technology and offers rare insight into how 3D printing is redefining what can be designed and manufactured, spawning new products and markets that we have yet to imagine.”—Ed Morris, vice president and director, America Makes—The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute
In 3D Printing Will Rock the World, John Hornick takes a deep look into the world of 3D printing and its potential future impact on business, manufacturing, science, crime, law, education, and, basically, life as we know it.
John Hornick is a partner based in the Washington, DC, headquarters of the Finnegan IP law firm, one of the largest IP firms in the world. Based on his more than thirty years of experience, Hornick counsels clients on virtually every aspect of IP law.
He founded Finnegan’s 3D Printing Working Group and advises and educates clients about 3D printing and the IP issues of this rapidly developing and potentially disruptive technology, and how it may affect their businesses.
The only IP attorney selected by the National Academies to participate in the US Comptroller General Forum on Additive Manufacturing (which was the basis of a report to the US Congress), and a juror for the International Additive Manufacturing Award, Hornick has been widely published and frequently speaks on 3D printing and its potential effects on IP law and the world.
