Eran Kahana, a cybersecurity and intellectual property lawyer in Maslon's Business & Securities Group, will serve as a panel member for the American Bar Association's webinar on January 23, 2019. Throughout the webinar, titled "Can C-3PO Register a Copyright and Be Sued for Copyright Infringement, or is Luke on the Hook?: Artificial Intelligence and its Role in Copyright," Eran and the other panel members will discuss current copyright law and how it relates to issues arising from the growth of artificial intelligence. In addition, the faculty will discuss:
- Arguments surrounding the protections for what are arguably non-human creations;
- Policy arguments surrounding whether to stay with the status quo or expand its reach to cover non-human creations; and
- Real-world, real people liability arising from AI-created infringement.
Eran counsels clients on a wide variety of matters related to cybersecurity, privacy, technology law, artificial intelligence, trademarks, patents, and copyright issues. In addition, Eran is a Fellow at Stanford Law School and serves in a variety of cybersecurity thought-leadership roles. He is a graduate of the FBI's Citizen Academy and works closely with the FBI, Department of Justice, Secret Service, and colleagues from the private and academic sectors to promote and sustain cybersecurity best practices.
