The latest printing technology is here in the form of a 3D printer. The law must keep up with technology advancing so quickly.
For an examination of issues involving 3D printers and copyright law see Edward Lee, Digital Originality, 14 Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment & Technology Law 919 (2012), http://ssrn.com/abstract=2128799.
See also the New York Times article on the legal issues that can potentially arise from the use of 3D printers. Nick Bilton, Disruptions: The 3-D Printing Free-for-All, N.Y. Times, Nov. 13, 2011, http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/13/disruptions-the-3-d-printing-free-for-all/?smid=pl-share.
An additional issue involve the hot topic of gun control. See the New York Times article on the University of Texas law student. The ATF would like to keep an eye on individuals who print guns with 3D printers - if it could. Nick Bilton, Disruptions: With a 3-D Printer, Building a Gun With the Push of a Button, N.Y. Times, Oct. 12, 2012, http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/07/with-a-3-d-printer-building-a-gun-at-home/?smid=pl-share.
One could run amok with the AWR possibilities in this topic or addressing part of it...

On April 25, 2013, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) introduced the Phoenix Law Review Victim's Rights Issue Volume 5 during a Congressional hearing on the proposed National Victims' Bill of Rights. You can view the special edition on HeinOnline.
The Phoenix Law Review members worked on this special edition of the journal related to the new proposed national Victim's Rights Amendment. The law review board also traveled to Washington last April to attend the first of many hearings on the bill.
Phoenix School of Law's Adjunct Professor Steve Twist worked with the Law Review group on the special edition and arranged for them to meet the Arizona delegation to Congress.
View the hearing here.
