Related to the news story mentioned on the Dis Unplugged podcast for this week, linked to below, Disney has filed a patent for anti-3D-scanning material so they can protect their intellectual property (like action figures) from being 3D scanned and duplicated. https://3dprintingindustry.com/news...-scanning-filament-3d-printing-method-115659/ Is it theft? Is copying something without hurting the original item theft? If you would not have ever purchased the original item, then is Disney actually losing money? It's an interesting question. Also, would this stop people or would they be able to just paint over the material and still be able to 3D scan it?
