  • 29th April: Is AI Copyrightable Part III – Register Here - Free or CEPIC members –

    CEPIC has been exploring the copyrightability of AI output in two recent webinars. While China and India have already recognized this status, the US Copyright Office has not. Recent decisions in Europe also suggest that proving human input is difficult since the same prompt can produce different outputs.

    With this in mind, CEPIC is bringing together two legal experts, J. Scott of Adobe and Vered Horesh of BRIA, to discuss how AI output can be protected if not by copyright. Join the debate, led by Marisol Muniz, to discover possible solutions to this complex issue.

    This webinar is FREE for CEPIC members (either associate members of CEPIC or members of the following associations: AEAPAF, FNAPPI, SAPHIR, BAPLA, BLF, SAB).

    Non CEPIC members will be charged 89, – € (inclusive of VAT).
