AI and the Future of the Law: Perspectives from Industry

 

ChatGPT and Open AI has given retail users first hand experience of the power of AI.  AI is fueled by data, which is often referred to as “the new oil” – while unrefined it holds no value, properly gathered and used it powers entire industries. The collection, use, and marketing of personal data is one of the most significant resources of our time.  Large Language Models use extensive amounts of data to formulate outputs that greatly increase efficiencies in a number of domains and is transforming industries. However, in so doing, the limits of the law are being tested.  This course will explore the various legal regimes that apply to large language models, copyright, fair use defenses, data regulation, including privacy, property, and security, and where there are gaps and overlaps.

 

This course will explore this less-robust legal framework around data world-wide, with a particular focus on the balance between monetization of data and privacy.  Guest speakers from leading companies in the AI space will share their views, current legal issues, and perspectives on where the law will likely land.  By the end of the course, students will understand the current regulations involving usage of data, trends, differences in approach on a global level, and where laws around data usage will likely settle.  Students will experience hearing from experts on these issues, with the opportunity for interaction and engagement.  By the completion of this course students will also understand the state of law around artificial intelligence and current issues impacting the usage of data.

This course will introduce students to fundamental principles of U.S. copyright law. The legal protection of "creative" content as an intangible property right has been statutorily recognized in the U.S. for over 200 years. While legal rights in such works are often seen as rooted in economic rationale, the law has changed over time, in response to technological challenges and international developments. The course will therefore also provide students with an understanding of how U.S. copyright law functions and adapts in this changing environment. Students with an interest in any branch of modern intellectual property law and how it responds to modern challenges will benefit from this course. Hybrid Juris Doctor students cannot take this course for an S/U grade.

In the life sciences industry, which encompasses pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals, patent protection and exclusivity rights are of critical importance. For industry innovators, patents and exclusivity rights are essential for companies and academic institutions to protect and recoup the very substantial research and development investments that are made to discover and develop new medicines and biologics that can treat and cure ailments, diseases, and other medical conditions. For generic drug and biosimilar manufacturers, challenging those patents?and the financial incentives to do so?allows them to manufacture and market affordable medicines with relatively small investments. The Federal Courts, U.S. Congress, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have created a body of case law, statutes, and regulations that are tailored to this industry. These laws and regulations provide both incentives to innovators to bring new products to market, and also incentives to those who seek to market generic equivalents or biosimilars of the products before the innovators? patent rights and exclusivities expire. This course will delve into many of the laws and regulations that should be understood by anyone who is interested in patent litigation, prosecution, or licensing in the life sciences industry.
