3D scanning: the achilles heel of IP protection for 3D printing

Jerry Fisher unexpectedly found himself in legal hot water after publishing 3D models of a famous Michelangelo statue located on Augustana College's campus. Mr. Fisher used hundreds of photographs of the statue to create a 3D model. After uploading the model to MakerBot's Thingiverse, Augustana College requested that Mr. Fisher take it down, on the grounds that he had violated copyright law.
