In a 2006 short story, ‘Printcrime’, Cory Doctorow imagined a dystopian future of contraband 3D printers. In the work, police try to shut down a bootleg operation engaged in the 3D printing of intellectual property. In his 2009 novel Makers, Doctorow explored the rise of the maker community, and its do-it-yourself ethic.
