A UK report highlighted positives from this tech, such as “new
manufacturing jobs” and “enormous environmental benefits.”
But it also identified areas policy makers need to address, including:
1. “A far more flexible intellectual property framework
2. A rethink on how or whether the Internet is regulated
3. New types of infrastructure that merge digital and physical worlds.”
These considerations are not necessarily unique to the UK.
