The Pirate Bay just announced its support of a new type of file on its BitTorrent ...—“physibles.”

 

TPB uses this term to describe “data objects that are able (and  feasible) to become physical" and declares that 3D printed objects will be the next frontier of piracy. Experts say that if the technology continues to advance at the same rate, in 10  or 20 years you might be printing a new pair of Nikes in the comfort of  your own home.

With all the public sentiment over SOPA, I was curious what people think of this next wave of piracy? Are you for, or against? Is there some point at which piracy hurts the economy and the livelihood of people who manufacture parts? Or is this just another thing that businesses need to adapt to?
