Thank you for attending the 2023 IP-Con!

About the Conference

The McCarthy Institute at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law was thrilled to announce that IP-Con headed to the Bay Area this year! The conference, hosted by Oracle, took place on September 2, 2023 at the Oracle Conference Center in Redwood Shores, CA.

The AI/IP conflict is developing more quickly than many professionals foresaw. The proliferation of AI is disrupting the very foundation of IP law by challenging long-held conceptions of what it means to be a creator, inventor, or producer of intellectual products. The immediate response has been to propose regulatory solutions on a number of fronts including a separate federal agency to tackle AI problems and a number of pending bills on Capitol Hill and in states across the country. This latest installment of IP-Con will bring together experts from government, academia, industry, and legal practice to explore this new intersection of AI, IP, and regulatory initiatives.
