Jonathan Coote interviewed by City A.M.’s Eyes On The Law

Associate Jonathan Coote was recently interviewed by City A.M. for their newly launched weekly legal segment Eyes On The Law, exploring the continuing legal uncertainty surrounding AI, music, and copyright law.

Jonathan’s comments were published in City A.M. on 3 June 2024.

“We’ve got all of this legal uncertainty where we have sort of an idea of what the law is at the moment but we know that the law is probably going to change.”

“The training side is where we’ve seen most of the disputes so far…the law is different across different jurisdictions.”

“Most of my work is focused on contracts. I think particularly on issues in relation to AI it’s trying to think about how these issues are going to affect contracts that we’re drafting at the moment, in the future.”
