Today’s technology-driven world hides complex computer programs, or software, powering its functions. While coding can be collaborative and often borrows from existing work, copyright law can provide software developers with protection for their original work and prevent infringement on their intellectual property. In this rapidly evolving field, understanding copyright law’s application to software will help attorneys best advise their clients on software licensing agreements, copyright infringement disputes, and other issues that arise. This knowledge will be especially relevant as artificial intelligence becomes increasingly relied upon to streamline work and existing code potentially sourced without programmers’ knowledge or consent. 

In this seminar, our expert panelists overview copyright law and what copyrightable means. They explore whether computer programs are copyrightable and what protections they may have. Our speakers discuss key developments in copyright law as well as questions raised by the adoption of new AI technologies, followed by a discussion of fair use and how it applies to computer software. Our expert panelists conclude with an in-depth discussion about copyright and the blockchain and a review of recent case law pertaining to copyright and software.
