Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property: The View of The British and Irish Law, Education and Technology Association (BILETA)

Between September and November 2020, the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) ran a consultation about the implications Artificial Intelligence (AI) may have for Intellectual Property (IP) policy, as well as the impact IP may have for AI.

This response was prepared on behalf of the British and Irish Law Education and Technology Association (BILETA) by Prof Dinusha Mendis, Dr Felipe Romero-Moreno, Dr Hiroko Onishi, and myself.

BILETA was formed in April 1986 to promote, develop and communicate high-quality research and knowledge on technology law and policy to organisations, governments, professionals, students and the public.

This submission focuses on the maincopyright and trade mark issues in AI.
