Copyright Implications of Machine Learning

On 24 May, the BSCC welcomed members to the second event on Legal AI, Copyright Implications of Machine Learning. Together with Imogen Ireland, Senior Associate at Hogan Lovells, Tobias Kempas, Counsel at Vinge, Lavan Thasarathakumar, Senior Advisor at Hogan Lovells, and Alastair Shaw, Counsel at Hogan Lovells, we discussed the evolving relationship between artificial intelligence (AI), intellectual property (IP), and regulatory frameworks. The event featured a series of insightful presentations that addressed both the challenges and opportunities presented by AI in the legal sector and underscored both the urgency and complexities in updating and harmonising legal frameworks to keep pace with the rapid advancements in AI technology. The speakers also explored the differing approaches to AI regulation in the UK, the EU, and Sweden, particularly in terms of how these differences could affect businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions.

 

Some key takeaways from the event:

Need for balancing innovation and IP rights
There is a need for legal frameworks that both foster innovation and protect intellectual property in the era of AI. This balance is crucial for encouraging creative and technological advancements while ensuring creators and inventors are fairly compensated.

Need for international cooperation and regulatory harmonisation
It called for greater international cooperation to ensure that AI is developed and used in a manner that is both responsible and beneficial to society while also respecting IP rights and regulatory requirements. Furthermore, harmonisation of laws across borders is needed to simplify the legal landscape for international businesses.

Need for businesses to understand the regulatory environments.
Understanding these regulatory environments is essential for compliance and strategic planning, as the differences between countries could affect businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions. It is also important to stay up-to-date on regulatory developments within your jurisdiction(s), as they can have dramatic implications for your company’s operations in its various subsidiaries and markets.

 

We would like to express our gratitude to all the speakers for sharing their expertise and insights on these issues. We would also like to extend our thanks to the team at Vinge for hosting a lovely evening. And, as always, thank you to all our attendees for your interesting questions which contributed to thoughtful discussions.

 

Please take time to answer a few questions about the event. Your feedback is highly valuable to us and will help us improve in the future.
