While true there is "progress" that serves no purpose. This is one of those cases. Sure, it is interesting that it is possible. But where is the progress? It will not be more stable than concrete, it will not be more durable than concrete and for sure it won't be faster than pouring concrete. The huge advantages of 3D printing (like the ability to seamlessly put something into something else or create durably connected locked joints) simply don't come into play when it comes to building a house.

Well... allow me to translate the lyrics and you tell me, ok?

Bend over, I command you
turn your visage away from me
I don't care about your face
bend over

A biped on all fours
I take him for a walk
ambling down the hallway
I'm disappointed

It gets better, but I don't know how many kids or Apple fanboys are watching. ;)

That's the whole reason for the spiel. That the whole thing is standing on SUCH thin ice that in the meantime every judge and their dog knows that these carpet bombing filesharing accusations don't work and throw the whole thing out before the John Doe lawsuit is filed in full.

That's the reason for the extortion. People get inconvenienced and asked for rather little money. It's likely that they'll just pay, ignoring that this also seems to admit guilt. It's like a weaker form of torture, just instead of skinning someone to make them admit guilt, you take away their beloved toy.
