Intellectual Property Law

Service 95 is now available online.

This service covers important updates to the Copyright Act 1994 and Patents Act 2013. In particular, this service provides important commentary on the case of Stephen L Thaler [2022] NZIPOPAT 2, in which the Tribunal deemed that artificial intelligence is not a person for the purposes of the Patents Act 2013 and therefore does not qualify as an inventor under NZ law. Whether artificial intelligence qualifies as a person has been a salient question internationally, and NZ’s decision reflects the current position of UK and US patent law, but contrasts with the position taken by the Australian Courts.
