Presentation and Networking
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Epicenter Amsterdam and TeekensKarstens advocaten notarissen welcome you to an afternoon presentation and networking drinks about the protection of creative and innovative ideas and products of great importance.
If the protection of innovative products and services is assured companies can be innovative. This protection is, among others, ensured by intellectual property rights (“IP”), such as copyright law and patent law.
Autonomous intelligent systems (“AIS”) and robotics are increasingly involved in the creative and innovative processes of companies. The use of AIS in the context of innovative processess within companies raises questions about the applicable legal framework. For instance who would own an invention discovered and developped by a robot?.Is this the robot or the human who controls the robot? Who would be liable if a robot infringes a copyright of a third party?
In our next session, we will address these issues. To do so, we will discuss IP in their specific relation to robotics and AIS. We will provide guidance on how to protect your IP in the best way possible, while using robotics and AIS.
