2040: Long-Term Insight into the Future of the IP/Licensing Practice
15:00 - 16:00
The IP and licensing industry has been disrupted before and some experienced professionals have seen it happen. These experienced professionals can share their insight to younger professionals as to what lies ahead for the future of the IP/licensing and practice. Will the use of disrupting emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain disrupt the licensing practice? How are these new tools going to affect the everyday practice of IP/licensing professionals, from in-house counsel to tech-transfer office professionals and private practice attorneys? Will the value of professional services be calculated with other means than hourly rates, if everyone uses powerful tools? Will some tasks of the IP/licensing practice be completely automated in the future? The very diverse panel composed of young and experienced in-house and private practice professionals, as well as of LegalTech company representatives, will discuss these challenging issues and will try to predict the licensing practice of the future, while learning from past disruptions!
