How copyright works in 2023

    • - BST

With the recent focus on risks and opportunities posed by generative AI for creative industries, we'll be joined by an AI technologist to look at how these tools actually work in practice.

Then our legal experts will address the copyright implications of using and training generative AI tools in the UK, EU and US. We'll also take you through the major new copyright cases from the past year, and their implications for copyright subsistence and infringement. 

Finally, amidst a rising tide of new content and media regulation, and challenges to the copyright system, we'll be joined by a panel of public policy experts representing a range of stakeholders to discuss their public policy priorities. You'll find a detailed agenda below.
