Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property

Edited by Jyh-An Lee, Reto M. Hilty and Kung-Chung Liu


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become omnipresent in today's business environment: from chatbots to healthcare services to various ways of creating useful information. While AI has been increasingly used to optimize various creative and innovative processes, the integration of AI into products, services, and other operational procedures raises significant concerns across virtually all areas of intellectual property (IP) law. While AI has drawn extensive attention from IP experts globally, this is the first book providing a broad and comprehensive picture from the perspectives of the very nature of AI technology, its commercial implications, its interaction with different kinds of IP, IP administration, software and data, its social and economic impact on the innovation policy, and ultimately AI's eligibility as a legal entity.

The book is originated from a conference co-organised by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Faculty of Law, Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition and Singapore Management University, School of Law on 28-29 November 2019. It is the first book to comprehensively analyse various intellectual property (IP) issues concerning the artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

The book titled “Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property”, edited by Jyh-An Lee, Reto M. Hilty and Kung-Chung Liu, has been published by Oxford University Press in 2021.
