    Just3DPrint Loses Defamation Lawsuit Against 3DPrint.com

    3D printing startup Just3DPrint lost its defamation lawsuit against 3DR Holdings, parent company of 3DPrint.com, this month, the last of three legal battles that they filed in a Philadelphia court in February. The case was filed by Just3DPrint CEO Ryan Simms in response to our coverage of their unauthorized sale of copyrighted 3D models and their subsequent public comments on the matter. Simms claimed that several articles published on 3DPrint.com in February of 2016 were defamatory and cost the nascent company $100 million. Simms' claims were rejected by the court. The company also filed and lost a similar lawsuit against TechCrunch, and filed a case against Stratasys, who went to arbitration after declining to defend themselves.

    Congratulations! Never let the threat of legal action (however unjustified) stop you from telling it like it is.

    This was a long, drawn-out, and totally unnecessary process -- but our entire team is celebrating the judge's decision! Proper design attribution is critical as this industry grows and IP remains in focus, and obviously freedom of the press is an issue near and very dear to us as we share all the latest goings-on in a busy industry.
