This event will focus on the role of innovation spaces — such as makerspaces, Fab Labs, hackerspaces, TechShop, and innovation hubs, incubators, and accelerators. This workshop will consider the evolution, growth, and transformation of innovation spaces. It will consider the demise of TechShop, the evolution of Fab Labs, as well as the reconstitution of the Maker Movement.
This event will consider how such innovation spaces manage intellectual property — including copyright, trade marks, designs, patents, and trade secrets. It will also explore how the Maker Movement draws upon open licensing — such as through open source software, open source hardware, and the Creative Commons.
