Updated: May 17

Wilftek attorney Lewis Sorokin is quoted in a World Trademark Review article about a new AI disclosure bill proposed in Congress. The bill would require artificial intelligence developers to disclose which materials the technology was trained on. The article is behind a paywall, but limited free subscriptions are available.

"However, for some, the US act – as currently envisioned – does not go far enough to protect IP rights. 'I have mixed feelings,' says Lewis Sorokin, an associate attorney at Wilftek, who specialises in IP and technology law. 'For artists to receive their fair share, AI companies should license the works used in training their models,' he argues. 'While a federally mandated disclosure system like this would be a step in the right direction for artists and other rights holders... credit is not the same as compensation.'"
