Artificial Intelligence and the many challenges it presents to intellectual property law is being widely discussed –  from WIPO to copyright offices globally, in businesses and academia. Beyond the hype, this workshop seeks to explore the issues being faced by companies developing products and services using artificial intelligence, through the lens of practising lawyers who advise them.

After opening remarks from Dr Maja Bogataj Jančič, talking about the work being undertaken by the Data Governance Working Group of the France and Canada G7 initiated Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI), Jonas Holm (DLA Piper – Stockholm) and Andrew Katz (Moorcrofts) will talk about the day to day AI and IP issues they have been advising their corporate clients on. The workshop will focus on the practical intellectual property concerns and issues faced by companies creating products and services using artificial intelligence.

The event is free to join and will take place via Zoom. Registration is required by emailing
