Nordic Highlights Q4 | 2019 - Eventful Year in the Intellectual Property and Technology Scene in the Nordic Countries

26 January 2020

We have published our Nordic Highlights Q4 | 2019 issue.

The past year has been characterised by an eventful intellectual property, technology, and privacy scene in the Nordic countries, and these areas have become an essential element in virtually all deals and transactions. We have also seen an increasing interest from clients in new and emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain, which pose many completely new legal issues. For example, it is unclear whether works created or inventions made with AI should qualify for IP protection and how existing contract law should be applied to self-performing smart contracts.

Our Nordic Highlights summarises some interesting transactions and developments which have occurred during the last quarter of 2019.
