Computers and Robots Don't Count


Courts use similar logic in case after case: It's not infringement if computers "read or review" the new copies, only if people do. Completely legal, four courts have agreed, because it's not as though Google is turning the complete books over to people. "Google Books ... is not a tool to be used to read books," wrote one judge. In another strand of the litigation, the parties at one point proposed a settlement that would have allowed "non-consumptive" digital humanities research on the scanned books, defined as "research in which computational analysis is performed on one or more Books, but not research in which a researcher reads or displays substantial portions of a Book to understand the intellectual content presented within the Book." This was fine, in the view of the author and publisher representatives who negotiated the proposed settlement.

University diploma Artificial intelligence and intellectual property - CEIPI - University of Strasbourg


The impact of the development of computer science on the knowledge of law is phenomenal and fundamental. Yet, few lawyers have the expertise to understand the impact of new algorithmic methods in their practice. The objectives of the training are twofold: the first is to transfer knowledge and skills in this high-tech sector, while the second is to provide technical training to lawyers. The university degree "Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property" has, on the one hand, a goal to remedy this lack in the field of intellectual property rights. Indeed, if there are many training courses on the digital and the law, none sufficiently understates the new issues of artificial intelligence in the field of intellectual property rights, in order to understand and control the issues of protection of these new types of creation, their usefulness to the implementation of rights, as well as their technical and economic environment.
