30th ABU IPLC concludes

The 30th ABU Intellectual Property & Legal Committee (IPLC) concluded on 7th March 2024 in Kuala Lumpur, drawing 40 delegates from 15 countries over two days.

The first day’s closed-door session for ABU members highlighted the critical need to stay abreast of legal challenges posed by AI and generative AI.

Following member suggestions, the ABU Legal Division then participated remotely in the WIPO Conversation on IP and Frontier Technologies, focusing on “Generative AI: Navigating Intellectual Property” on 13th-14th March 2024, reflecting ABU’s proactive engagement in global IP discussions on AI.

The second day featured presentations from academics, law firm partners, and senior professionals from WIPO, the EBU, and ABU member broadcasters, covering media rights, legal and ethical AI issues, copyright, and AI’s legal implications.

The venue for the next IPLC remains undecided, pending member feedback, underscoring ABU’s commitment to a member-centric approach in guiding its intellectual property and technology advocacy.
