Since the inception of the public debate on Artificial Intelligence (AI), our team of lawyers has been sharpening its skills and capabilities with a view to provide emlex’s legal services in connection with this rapidly evolving technology field. In this very new area of law, in a constant state of flux, a work in progress where the regulatory framework is still in the making, emlex through its team of dedicated lawyers is constantly refining its skills acquired in neighbouring fields of law, in order to counsel and advise clients on various legal issues related to AI, including regulatory compliance, intellectual property protection, and data privacy.
Our firm has been closely following the regulatory developments surrounding AI and its impact on society. One such aspect of relevance is the liability’s regime related to AI systems, which is one of the main concerns of the EU regulators in the formation of the AI’s regulatory framework. We are also closely monitoring the developments in the area of AI’s ethics and are ready to work side-by-side with companies active on AI projects to assist them identify ethical standards to be applied since the design of AI systems.
Intellectual Property protection:
We understand the importance of protecting our clients’ intellectual property in the AI sector. Content scraping is in this connection one of the major source of concern for both IP owners and users/developers of AI systems. We have provided counselling in this specific respect to clients on both sides of the AI’s fence. We have also contributed and continue to contribute to the clarification of IP ownership’s rights related to software and AI generated works, in particular as it concerns copyrightability and copyright ownership of AI generated or assisted creative works.
As data protection concerns continue to grow with respect to AI systems in general and of late to large language models in particular, our firm is committed to helping our clients navigate the complex regulatory landscape. We leverage on our extensive expertise on data protection laws and regulations, to advise clients on the specificities of said laws applied to AI.
emlex is dedicated and keen to work with clients operating in the AI sector and we are open to even forward looking and risk sharing approaches, aware of the novelty and challenges of this specific sector. We trust that our deep understanding of the legal issues in a number of areas of the law that are of great relevance for the AI sector are a secure added-value we can offer.
