The Future of 3D Printing, 4D Printing and Augmented Reality
Chapter 3: A virtual reality? Creativity and the individual: the importance of creative space
The chapter begins with a consideration of the history of creativity within society, and notes that creative acts began prior to the existence of IP law - or, indeed, formalised law. The chapter will follow the progression of law as enabling the dissemination of creative expression, moving into a period of regulatory fetters. The focus of the State was on the expression of works, rather than the inner creativity. That inner creativity remained a protected space, both physical and mental. However, more recent developments, including the rise of an economic dialogue, along with the development of digital machinic technologies, poses a regulatory challenge as the may endanger the inner creative space.
