Your Car the Pirate: How cars infringe copyright and deploy data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A car is as much a part of a driver’s identity as it is a means of travel. For many, their car has a soul of its own, and that soul is about to transform as more and more software finds its way under the dashboard. Assisted driving and autonomous cars will change the way we travel and commute but also how we interact with the road through the massive amount of information the cars’ systems will collect. From on-board entertainment to urban murals, we would like to map the future of cars and point to IP-related policy problems that may arise.
By presenting a car of the future we want to map the trends that will shape automotive industry in the next 5 to 10 years. We will examine what types of potentially copyrighted data a car like that would collect and what are the challenges related to that.
Through a discussion with the audience we will model possible best solutions that will balance out the rights of users, owners, and producers of these new, exciting vehicles.
