In this edition of TechLaw10 Cordery’s Jonathan Armstrong talks to Professor Eric Sinrod from his home in California. They look again at the legal issues surrounding AI and the rise of chatbot ChatGPT and the legal and ethical issues that brings. This film follows on from an earlier film looking at these issues https://bit.ly/chatgptfilm. This time Eric & Jonathan focus on liability for chatbot operators.
The topics include:
- can chatbots be liable for the things they do?
- should chatbots be protected by Section 230 of the US Communications Decency Act?
- can chatbots be liable for IP issues?
- how is the UK Shetland Times case from 1996 relevant to today’s AI offerings?
- is ChatGPT right in its legal assessment of its liabilities?
- what are the issues involved in scraping data to train AI?
- what will the proposed new EU AI law do?
- how will regulators handle AI complaints?
