Algo IP: Rights in Code – 2020 Update Webinar – 23rd April 2020

Webinar –  Thursday April 23rd –  9.00 – 10.15 am

The relationship between copyright and software has never been easy. The Google v Oraclecopyright case of the decade’ now in the US Supreme Court is shining a spotlight on the details.

Whichever way the case goes, the relationship between intellectual property and software, algos, AI and the cloud is set to develop in the 2020s in ways that will profoundly impact business.

Join us on April 23rd for a webinar in which Richard Kemp, Deirdre Moynihan  and Chris Kemp from top specialist Kemp IT Law will focus on IP hot topics for software, algos, AI and the cloud. We will:

  • review recent and upcoming big cases
