Impact of Artificial Intelligence on IP Policy: Call for Comments

WIPO is seeking to develop, through an open process, a list of issues concerning the impact of artificial intelligence (Al) on intellectual property (IP) policy that might form the basis of future structured discussions.

On September 27, 2019, WIPO held the first Conversation on IP and AI, bringing together member states and other stakeholders to discuss the impact of Al on IP policy, with a view to collectively formulating the questions that policymakers need to ask.

On December 13, 2019, WIPO published a draft issues paper, inviting member states and all other interested parties to provide comments and suggestions. The submissions period closed on February 14, 2020.
