What we talked about 

In a world where only humans were once thought to hold the keys to creativity, generative AI is now taking center stage, reshaping how we think about who or what can be an artist.

From penning novels and poems to painting canvases and composing melodies, AI is pushing the boundaries of what we thought possible.

As we marvel at these advancements, an even more thrilling topic arises: The intricate dance between Generative AI and Patent Law. 

How do the laws conceived for human invention grapple with the wonders birthed by algorithms? As AI continues its rapid and profound evolution, we are left grappling with thought-provoking dilemmas: Who truly owns the data that sparks these breathtaking AI creations? And once they come to life, forming pieces of art or groundbreaking innovations, to whom do the rights rightfully belong?

Join us in this eye-opening seminar as we dive into the heart of modern copyright debates, and we explore the future of ownership.
