New CEIPI’s advanced training program on “Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property”, 24-26 May 2018, Strasbourg

CEIPI is happy to report on a new Advanced Training Program on “Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property” which took place in Strasbourg from 24 to 26 May 2018.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robots have been the subject of science fiction for some time. That fictional future is now a present reality. The AI market is predicted to grow from $8 billion in 2016 to more than $47 billion in 2020. Investment in AI increased more than 300 percent in 2017 compared to 2016. Intelligent machines, machine learning algorithms, sapient bots and neural networks have invaded our daily life. Humans will be increasingly called to interact with AI, especially in the digital environment. The regulation of AI’s activities is set to become a primary policy issue. Lawyers, entrepreneurs, or policy makers must fast learn about the key legal challenges that AI will bring about, if they want to play a role in a revolution that will occupy the policy debate for the next years to come and beyond.

In particular, AI’s disruptive effects on traditional business models will force a re-consideration of the Intellectual Property (IP) framework. Today, AI and algorithms write news and novels, generate artworks, write and perform music. Automated intelligence can drive innovation processes on its own initiative. AI challenges the most traditional IP legal notions, such as “copying”, “originality”, “creator”, “author”, or “inventiveness”. Can a robot be an author? Can a robot be an inventor? Can a robot co-author a work with human intelligence? Who owns AI generated works or inventions? Should AI’s inventions be considered prior art? Who owns the dataset from which an artificial intelligence must learn? Who should be liable for creativity and innovation generated by AI, if they impinge upon others’ rights or other legal provisions?

The opening of the program by the Prof. Christophe Geiger, Director General of CEIPI, accompagnied by Giancarlo Frosio, CEIPI and Jean-Marc Deltorn, EPO and member of the Research department of CEIPI

This training program explored these thorny questions by dissecting legal, policy and ethical issues concerning AI impact on creativity and innovation. In this course, CEIPI gathered leading experts in the field to discuss these novel issues from a broader international perspective, reviewing miscellaneous—and often inconsistent—national solutions.

This training program brought together more than 60 participants, mostly professionals from creative economies and high-tech, professionals and entrepreneurs, attorneys, policy makers, judges, and students.

UPCOMING CONFERENCES AT CEIPI

Annual Guest of Honor Lecture of the CEIPI Summer School by Prof. Lisa Ramsey on the topic “Resolving Conflicts between Trademark Laws and Free Expression in the United States and Europe”, 10 July 2018

CEIPI is pleased to announce that Prof. Lisa Ramsey, Professor of Law at the University of San Diego School of Law, will deliver a presentation on 10 July 2018 at 5:30 pm, as part of the lecture series “(Re) Thinking Intellectual Property, Fundamental Questions and New Perspectives” as well as a Annual Guest of Honor Lecture in the 10th edition of the Summer School in European intellectual property law. Her presentation will focus on the theme “Resolving Conflicts between Trademark Laws and Free Expression in the United States and Europe”.
 
Abstract: In Matal v. Tam, the U.S. Supreme Court recently held that the federal trademark law denying registration to potentially disparaging marks was an unconstitutional regulation of the viewpoint of expression in violation of the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment. U.S. courts should now evaluate whether trademark laws violate the free speech right and balance the benefits of the specific trademark provision against that law’s harm to expression. This presentation explores whether courts in the European Union will similarly conclude that the right to freedom of expression protected in constitutions and human rights treaties is violated by national or regional trademark laws. While those courts may determine that certain trademark laws conflict with freedom of expression, they are less likely to recognize a free expression right to registration of offensive trademarks or other marks contrary to morality or public order.

Short CV: Lisa P. Ramsey is the Class of 1975 Endowed Professor of Law at the University of San Diego School of Law, where she is a founding member of the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Markets. She teaches and writes in the areas of trademark law, intellectual property, and international intellectual property. She has given presentations on trademark law throughout the United States and around the world, including in Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, New Zealand, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. Before joining the USD law faculty, Professor Ramsey was an intellectual property litigator for several years at a law firm in San Diego, California.

Seminar by Professor Allan Rocha de Souza on the topic “Copyright Limitations in Brazil: recent court developments”

The CEIPI had the pleasure to welcome Professor Allan Rocha de Souza on 14 May 2018 for a seminar on “Copyright Limitations in Brazil: recent court developments”.

Copyright Limitations in Brazil: recent court developments: The progressive constitutionalization of private law in Brazil has effectively casted a new light on the framing and solution of the disputed issues within the Copyright and IP systems. Considered under a Human Rights framework the limitations and exceptions to copyright (L&E) are understood as expressing the balancing and harmonization between authors' and other fundamental rights and, for this same reason, as decided by the Brazilian Superior Court of Justice, the L&E shall not be read as restrict only to the situations expressly stated in the legislation. Follow-up decisions and recent legislative changes in the broader legal system have strengthened this position, ensuring the existence of an intrinsic openness and flexibility to the L&E. This offers us a chance to discuss the extent of such flexibility and openness in the light of the international instruments as well as to challenge the civil law and author's rights tradition that claims an exhaustive list to be the best or only solution for the L&E.

Short CV: Allan Rocha de Souza is a Professor of Civil and Intellectual Property Law at UFRRJ/ITR Law School and the Graduate Program on Public Policy and Development, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (PPED/UFRJ), Brazil. Researcher and vice-coordinator of the Proprietas National Institute of Science and Technology (INCT Proprietas). The primary study interests in copyright are on limitations and exceptions as well as contracts and collective management; from a comparative, cultural and human rights perspective. He also does researches on property and knowledge systems.

Conference-debate “Discussion around copyright”, Kléber Bookshop, Strasbourg, moderated by Franck Macrez

In the framework of the “Lecture series of Kléber Bookshop”, which is intented to reach out to the general public on copyright issues of cultural relevanceCEIPI organizes monthly conference-debate on current issues of copyright.

Intellectual property is no longer, today, only a matter of specialized lawyers, but a regular topic of the public debate, especially thanks to the digital revolution but also thanks to its influence on fundamental societal questions, such as access to knowledge or the appropriation of living organisms. The upcoming European Commission's copyright reform and other international treaty negotiations show the importance and topicality of these subjects. The topic of these lectures will focus on issues related to copyright and neighboring rights, as well as issues related to the evolution of patent law and trademark law.

The fact that the “intellectual property is part of the public debate” leads the CEIPI of wanting to bring its knowledge and know-how in the framework of open debates and broadly participatory as possible, and no longer only to specialists and students in Law.

These lectures are moderated by Mr. Franck Macrez, Associate Professor at CEIPI. Speakers will be academics, practitioners (legal practitioners, lawyers ...), journalists, politicians (institutional, parliamentarians ...), business leaders.

Several editions already took place as part of this cycle:

  • On 12 January 2018, the conference-debate “Social networks and image right », invited Mr. Théo Hassler, Professor at CEIPI, University of Strasbourg, author of the « Le droit à l’image des personnes » (LexisNexis, 2014) and Mr. Pascal Créhange, President of the Order, Lawyer at Strasbourg Bar.
