How to Mitigate Legal Risks when Using Generative AI in Europe

AI within different legal frameworks can carry legal risks, but businesses can take steps to mitigate these risks.

Generative artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming the way people learn and create. Used right, this technology has the potential to create content, products, and experiences that were once unimaginable. However, its rapid advancement has raised legal concerns, including issues of copyright infringement, data privacy, and liability. These challenges are not limited to any type of business, as generative AI tools can be used in many settings. However, making use of these new tools can come at a steep price tag if AI use runs afoul of legal requirements. What steps can companies take to leverage the power of generative AI while mitigating the associated legal risks?

This course will provide an overview of the legal and regulatory considerations for companies using generative AI tools. You will learn about intellectual property and copyright infringement risks associated with generative AI, including how to evaluate use cases and train models using legally obtained data. The course will also cover data privacy and security risks and how to comply with local laws such as GDPR and UK GDPR. 

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  1. Understand the challenges of intellectual property law regarding generative AI
  2. Identify whether personal data is being used in the development of generative AI and ensure compliance with local data privacy laws
  3. Understand the terms under which the generative AI tool is provided to ensure compliance with confidentiality agreements and other legal requirements
