Jones Day lawyers Lillian He, Hiromitsu Miyakwa, Zac Sharpe, and Simon M.

A federal district court held in Thaler v. Perlmutter that an AI-generated image, “A Recent Entrance to Paradise,” cannot be copyrighted due to the lack of sufficient human contribution to its creation. Jones Day partners Emily Tait and Carl Kukkonen talk about the implications of the decision, the questions that remain, third-party complications, and what GenAI users need to know.
As part of a series of programs covering class action laws in jurisdictions around the world, and to supplement content found in Jones Day’s recent publication, Class Actions Worldview: Part I—United States and the European Union, this edition of Jones Day Talks focuses on Class Actions in Spain – or as they’re known – Collective Actions.
Antonio Canales and Gonzalo Hierro, both based in Madrid, talk about the current Collective Actions landscape. They also discuss the Spanish Preliminary Draft Law, and share their thoughts on settlements, third-party funding, and more.
Antitrust enforcement in labor markets continues to escalate worldwide. Jones Day partners Kevin Hart and Philipp Werner talk about the continuing crackdown on anticompetitive labor practices in the U.S. and across the EU, review recent developments in case law, and explain what employers need to know.
Across every industry and every region of the world, corporate compliance programs have increasingly become an integral part of a company’s operations and procedures—and the trend shows no signs of slowing. In the first in a series of Jones Day Talks programs addressing topics related to corporate compliance programs, Jones Day lawyers Henry Klehm, Toni Citera, and Paloma Valor discuss the history of corporate compliance programs, the changing role of the compliance officer, challenges for multinational companies, the importance of technology, and how the compliance function can effectively partner with other parts of the organization to help mitigate risk and achieve business objectives.
Each lawyer who is the first in their family to attend law school (and, in many cases, college) forges a unique path to a legal career. In this podcast, the Firm’s Rasha Gerges Shields, Abe Hester, and Stephen Scott share stories from their journeys as “first-generation” lawyers.
Although class actions have been common in the United States for decades, they have not been as widely used in the rest of the world. The situation and risks remain in flux, however, as more countries have renewed momentum to enact class actions or class action-like procedures.
The Firm is producing in-depth, multipart series of publications on class actions that will spotlight a wide array of jurisdictions worldwide. The first installment in the series, released in August 2023, focuses on the United States and European Union. In this podcast, also the first in a series, partners Ozan Akyurek and Becky Kcehowski discuss recent trends and developments in U.S. and UK class actions.
The growing carbon credit and related derivatives markets continue to attract the attention of regulatory agencies and law enforcement. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has just announced that it is looking for whistleblowers on potential fraud or manipulation in the carbon credit markets, which is a major enforcement development in the ESG space. Jones Day partners Josh Sterling and Howard Sidman talk about the CFTC’s ramped-up enforcement focus and what it means for participants in the carbon markets.
As its potential uses soar, Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to attract the attention of multiple regulatory agencies. A recent high-profile U.S. Senate hearing made it clear that the use of AI must be consistent with federal laws pertaining to fair lending, housing, employment, and similar situations.
Jones Day’s Dorothy Giobbe and Alexander Maugeri discuss the legal implications of introducing artificial intelligence to decision-making processes and how users should prepare for increased scrutiny.
