BLG Workshop: Strategic Intellectual Property (IP) and Privacy Planning for AI – the legal angle

  • Contracting for AI companies: ownership of IP rights, employment agreements, confidentiality, technology license agreements
  • Text and data mining (TDM): Does your company have user rights? Do fair use and research provide exceptions to copyright?
  •  "Smart" trade-marks and company branding: distinctiveness, descriptiveness & registerability
  • Strategic Planning for IP: managing IP risk, leveraging your IP, building a valuable portfolio, navigating IP rights of third-parties, planning tools and approaches
  • Privacy considerations for AI: automated decision-making, explainability, and consent
