As an experienced litigator, I defend clients in high-stakes lawsuits arising from the impact of disruptive technology on people and society. My current focus is on the many open legal questions raised by recent advances in generative artificial intelligence.
I also counsel companies
on ways to protect their legal and business interests in the changing landscape of new technologies.
By leveraging my experience as a litigator, I can see around corners and anticipate legal risks. My experience enables me to identify potential liability that arise from company operations and product design.
I enjoy examining cutting-edge legal issues related to generative AI and related technologies through writing. Recently I have been curious about questions such as, do companies like OpenAI and Microsoft have to give credit to open-source programmers whose code was used to make a commercial product like Github Copilot? If a person makes a children's book using pictures created from an open-source image-generating AI like Stable Diffusion, who has ownership interest in those pictures? What if those pictures included the image or likeness of a celebrity? If publicly-available recordings of a person's voice were used to create an AI voice for a podcast, is using that voice without the person's permission considered identity theft? I aim explore these questions and more in my blog. If you're curious, check it out!
