The subject is any legal action taken against websites (such as thingiverse.com ), which host CAD filed that allow for the 3D printing of digital blueprints. Some of CAD files that have been or continue to be publicly available that are illegal are firearms and associated weapons and munitions, as well as drug paraphernalia. Departments of the DOJ that would most likely deal with these sorts of issues are ATFE and the DEA.
