“Morning Startup” is Perth’s premier meetup for entrepreneurs, held at breakfast time every fortnight. I’ll be presenting on Wednesday, 10 May 2023, on the topic “What startups need to know about IP in the new age of AI“.
Start-ups often build their business plans around their intellectual property (IP), and may even use their IP as their point of differentiation. However, in the age of robots, automation, machine learning and generative AI, businesses now need to start rethinking how they conceptualise what is their intellectual property.
Who owns content created by a robot? The answer is not as intuitive as many often think, and this can impact business models that seek to monetise or control that content. On the other hand, there remains legal risk to businesses for AI systems infringing someone else’s IP, particularly in the space of machine learning.
These issues can arise in a wide range of scenarios, from businesses that are engaged or commissioned to create content (eg software developers, copywriters, consultants, architects, through to artists & photographers), clients who commission them, through to businesses which use automated tools to populate their social media content. This talk will look at how these issues may affect start-ups which use and adopt AI in their businesses, or whose content is used or adopted by others.
