The EU Artificial Intelligence Act: What Copyright Lawyers Should Know

The European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act is the first comprehensive piece of AI regulation, and will have a global impact due to its extraterritorial reach, and as a source of inspiration for other regulators. While intellectual property issues are not at the front and center in the legislative approach, the AIA does refer to copyright provisions and provides some guardrails for general purpose (generative) AI. The talk explains these rules in the context of the overall regulation and their roots in harmonized EU copyright law.

Felix Hilgert is a German-qualified technology and video games lawyer with particular experience in sector specific commercial contracts and copyright issues, as wells as European digital regulation, consumer protection, youth protection and privacy. As the head of Osborne Clarke's San Francisco office, he focuses on helping US based companies expand and succeed internationally.
