Vous avez dit voleurs !!!
On s’y attendait mais #Myhrvold (ex #Micro$oft) fait très fort. tellement qu’on se dit que ça pourrait être un hoax.
Most 3-D printing has been done in industry or by hobbyists who share their designs freely online. Now Intellectual Ventures, the company run by Nathan Myhrvold, the former Microsoft CTO and alleged patent troll, has been issued a patent on a system that could prevent people from printing objects using designs they haven’t paid for....
et histoire de vraiment bien verrouiller, le #brevet est étendu à toute manipulation/reproduction d’objet. Tant qu’à faire !
The #patent number 8,286,236 filed back in 2008 and issued on October 9th to Invention Science Fund I, an arm of Myhrvold’s company, isn’t limited to 3-D printing, also known as additive manufacturing. It also covers using digital files in extrusion, ejection, stamping, die casting, printing, painting, and tattooing and with materials that include “skin, textiles, edible substances, paper, and silicon printing.”
