We are delighted to welcome Professor Matthew Sag of Emory University in the United States for an ‘in-conversation’ special event for the Australian creative, technology, media and telecommunications industries.

He is a leading U.S. authority on the fair use doctrine in copyright law in jurisdictions where it applies and its implications for researchers in the fields of text data mining, machine learning and AI. He testified to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Intellectual Property in relation to copyright and Generative AI in July 2023.

The discussion will be moderated by Simon Newcomb, Partner at Clayton Utz. Simon is a technology transactions lawyer and advises on intellectual property management, commercialisation and other commercial transactions.
