"AR wars" - Augmented Reality technology and the law - Wednesday 24 April 2013 - London
Junior Lawyers' Group Meeting
Hosted and sponsored by Travers Smith
Dan Reavill, Partner, Commercial, IP & Technology, Travers Smith
Peter Lee, Solicitor, Taylor Vinters
Dr Roger Clarke, Project Manager, Augmented Reality Technologies, The Technology Partnership
When the physical, real-world environment is augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data there are exciting possibilities for technology, digital media, engineering, gaming and "lifestyle" companies. The stakes are high and so are the potential legal risks. It is predicted that the next 18 months will see mainstream companies in several industries adopting AR and then fighting for technological supremacy over the negotiating table and in the courts.
Peter Lee and Roger Clarke will set out the technological and commercial potential of AR and discuss some of the legal issues and potential battles ahead.
