For the first time, both the special lecture and the working sessions of the Special Committees and Working Groups of the GRUR Annual Conference are addressing a general topic: "Digital Future".

Digitalisation impacts all areas of IP law, called “green law” in Germany, and offers us many new topics and legal questions that still need to be answered. The Annual Meeting attempts to develop answers and to identify further issues of interest. We are therefore very much looking forward to numerous participants who want to actively engage in the discussions and contribute to creating a legally secure digital future.

Learn more about

  • Technical aspects, applications and perspectives of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data
  • Digital Mobility and the legal framework for autonomous cars
  • Surreptitious advertising through influencer marketing
  • Liability in the virtual world from the perspective of the German Federal Court of Justice
  • The protection of competition in digital markets
  • Patents on the Internet of Things
  • Legal issues regarding 3D Printing
  • Copyright and Artificial Intelligence

and much more.

What better place for exploring the general topic of the Annual Meeting conference than Berlin, the capital of the start-up scene in Germany, where new ideas and business models for the digital age are developed on a daily basis. Just take a look at the attached programme and let a fascinating social programme arranged by the Regional Group Berlin under the lead of its Chairwoman, Dr Anke Nordemann-Schiffel, surprise you.

We trust that more than 800 experts in intellectual property, antitrust and data law from over 30 countries will join us for this year´s GRUR conference and look forward to welcoming you to Berlin!
