Physical | SGInnovate Office

Organised by SGInnovate and IPOS International


Intellectual property (IP) considerations are discussed in depth in this session with a focus on generative AI. Now more than ever, it's important for individuals and businesses to have a firm grasp on the novel intellectual property (IP) difficulties and opportunities presented by the proliferation of generative AI technologies that may generate original content like music, art, and written works.

In this panel, leading professionals will discuss the challenges of IP protection in the age of generative AI. Participants will learn about the legal and ethical issues involved in deciding who owns, copies, and licenses work created by artificial intelligence. They will also gain an understanding of current IP developments and legal frameworks in the generative AI industry.

This event will focus on:

  • The significance of open-source licenses in fostering innovation while safeguarding intellectual property (IP) rights.
  • The impact of AI algorithms on copyright law and effective strategies for protecting and managing IP rights in generative AI projects.
  • To provide attendees with actionable insights and practical advice, the presenters will offer practical guidance and real-world examples to help navigate the complex legal landscape of intellectual property in generative AI.

Attending this session will provide AI developers, artists, content creators, and lawyers with a thorough knowledge of the novel intellectual property (IP) implications in generative AI. They will have the tools necessary to navigate the ever-changing landscape of generative AI with confidence in their ability to secure their intellectual property (IP), claim ownership over their work, and use their IP to fuel innovation and financial success.
