In this episode:

I have brought my friend and Intellectual Property (IP) genius Stephen Ruse back on the show so we can chew on the fat that is: Artificial Intelligence. You will have first met him on episode 20 when we talked about copyright and what you can secure, in terms of what you design or create inside your business.

There is so much going on right now and it’s all moving incredibly fast. We take a step back and do a realistic view of the world (right now – as at 5 April 2024) to see how this onslaught of AI is affecting our right to ownership of the things we are creating for ourselves, as well as where the risks lie in others using our value, voice or even likeness without our permission.

Come listen to our conversation and see how you feel afterwards in weighing up the fears and risks with the potential for good, which artificial intelligence also holds for us all, as subject matter experts.
