The AI/IP conflict is developing more quickly than many professionals foresaw. The proliferation of AI is disrupting the very foundation of IP law by challenging long-held conceptions of what it means to be a creator, inventor or producer of intellectual products. The immediate response has been to propose regulatory solutions on a number of fronts including a separate federal agency to tackle AI problems and a number of pending bills on Capitol Hill and in states across the country. The latest installment of the McCarthy Institute’s IP-Con will bring together leaders from government, academia, industry and legal practice to explore this new intersection of AI, IP and regulatory initiatives.
WilmerHale Partner Ben Fernandez will participate in the conference’s “Analog to AI: Using AI as a Shield Not a Sword” session, a panel discussion examining how trademark practitioners can integrate generative AI to use marks in a legally sound manner. WilmerHale is a proud sponsor of this conference.
