Wiki Weapons Project leader Cody Wilson, a University of Texas Law Student himself, claims the project is about "collapsing the distinction between digital information and material goods" and a "statement to these international kleptocrats that this isn't in your control anymore." Less inflammatory, perhaps, is Wilson's assertion that 3-D printing is a technology whose time has come. So if the Wiki Weapons Project isn't, strictly speaking, illegal under the current legal framework, what does this mean for the future of free information in a world where data can quickly become a physical object? How could something like this influence the future of intellectual property law? And is Wiki Weapons, by pushing this idea of freedom of information in such a controversial way, undermining its own ideals?
