This 20-page paper, written by Michael Weinberg, provides a three-step process for licensing 3D printing objects and files. The first step is figuring out what part of the object or object file is eligible for copyright protection. In this step, the author explains the difference between copyrightable objects and uncopyrightable objects. The second step is to understand what copyright does control and does not control. The final step is to choose the appropriate license for the object or object file. The author provides suggestions for choosing licenses and highlights the limitations of licenses and copyrights.
