AI Legal:

Business Ethics of Content Creation

Length of Workshop: 3 hours


In this course, attendees will gain insights into the risks and rewards associated with incorporating generative AI into their workflow. The world of generative AI comes with complex terms of service (‘TOS’) that carry significant business risks. Clients often expect unrestricted rights to the work they receive, which may not be feasible when generative AI content is involved.

During the course, attendees will navigate through the TOS of various providers and understand how these terms, along with associated risks, impact their businesses and clients.
