Executive Director



NEW YORK, NY – The Copyright Society is excited to launch a series of programs and events focused on the topic of artificial intelligence (AI).  

The series will cover the latest developments and topics on the growing range of issues relating to generative and other AI technologies, and their impact on copyright laws and practices. The series will be a hybrid format (in-person and livestreamed) and will be open to both Copyright Society members and non-members.  

“The Copyright Society has the reach and intellectual firepower to bring together expertise in this hugely important field for the benefit of practitioners and stakeholders everywhere,” said Casey Chisick, Copyright Society President.  

The first event “Exploring the Impact of Using AI to Create New Works on Copyrightability” launches on March 14 with a free program offered jointly with the Copyright Alliance.  

We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this conversation, said Copyright Society Executive Director Kaitland Kubat, Our AI-focused discussions have been evolving over the last five years at a lightening pace, and the Society is ready and poised to provide an impartial perspective.”   

Featuring a lineup of speakers from leading practitioners, academics, technologists, creators and officials, the series will provide practitioners with a toolkit to assist in analyzing and advising clients on the impact of AI technologies. Legal practitioners in copyright-adjacent fields will also find the information invaluable, as will businesspeople, technologists, and academics who work in fields related to content in the digital age.

  • Fair Use Considerations in Using Content to Train ML Models presented by the Copyright Society’s New York Chapter on April 19
