PTOS Education Committee presents Continuing Legal Education (CLE):

AI & Copyright as a Matter of Style

Tuesday, May 21st from 1-2pm ET

Presented by Professor Seán O’Connor

 

Generative AI tools are marketed to replicate famous styles. While artists’ performance styles can be protected under enhanced NIL/RoP statutes, compositional style cannot. In this presentation, Prof. O’Connor explores how authorial “voice” in the form of style is not at the margins of copyright but at its core. Drawing on current cases including NYT v OpenAI and the recent AWF v Goldsmith decision, they posit stylistic innovation as perhaps the last core of human creativity and invention that cannot as of yet be done by AI and why we need to protect it.

 

Seán O’Connor is a Professor of Law, Founding Director of the Innovation Law Clinic, and Executive Director of the Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property (CPIP) at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School. Their research and law practice focus on intellectual property and business law, especially the role of general counsel for start-ups and commercializing innovation in technology and arts. 

 

There is no Other Time available for this event.

VA CLE credit will be applied for.
