GRUR meets Brussels 2018

REGISTER NOW!




Artificial intelligence is on the rise. This has legal implications not only for areas like safety and security, liability or contract law but also for intellectual property. The workshop aims at providing a concise overview of the emerging issues. Classical intellectual property is based on the concept of intellectual creation. However, with the increasing use of AI a sole creator (inventor, author, designer etc.) may no longer be discernable. AI may also lead to new problems in the area of competition law due to the emergence of new products and new markets. Last but not least, the protection of AI related inventions and creations has already created new challenges to the existing IP law. Is there a need for (further) legislative action?
Together with an overview of current EU initiatives the 9th GRUR meets Brussels Workshop will provide a useful summary of the state of play for political, legal and academic experts and give some perspective on future developments.
