The Road Ahead 2021

written by FuturisticLawyer
February 1, 2021

Around seven months ago I decided to publish Futuristic Lawyer. Since then, I have posted content on a regular basis and will continue to do so. 

My goal with Futuristic Lawyer is to deliver relevant and objective information on important subjects of global significance. All the writing work is 100% made by me with no proofreaders or other involved parties. My audience is not limited to lawyers or field experts, but anyone interested in aspects of technological development, together with climate change. In this regard, I strive to communicate complex knowledge in a relatively simple manner, so everyone can follow. My articles range from reflections and essays to legal expositions, which can be heavy to read but are necessary to shed light on important topics.

I plan to write on the following themes:

Artificial Intelligence and the Law

Our progress in the field of AI technology will eventually explode. The long-term goal of Elon Musk’s Neuralink is to create a symbiosis between humans and artificial intelligence. We will most likely, within a few decades, be able to merge our smartphones directly with our brains. That is just one example out of many, as to how AI-tech will influence our future. Where to draw the line from a legal and ethical standpoint? Stephen Hawking once said: “The rise of powerful AI will be either the best or the worst thing ever to happen to humanity. We do not yet know which.”

Climate Change

My first three articles on this website concerned the main findings from my Master Thesis in Law, “Climate Change and IP” from the University of Copenhagen. In November 2021, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 26), will take place in Glasgow. I will make sure to follow the political developments, and share updates and personal opinions I may have on this blog.  

Personal Data Protection

Personal data protection, and namely the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU, is constantly evolving. I work with GDPR in my everyday work. And I have an interest in how the legal framework applies to big tech companies.  

Music and Blockchain

In 2020, I have focused on blockchain technology and how it can be utilized in the music/entertainment industry indeed. Also, I will continue to stay updated in this field and write about developments. 

Suggestions and topics of current interest

Anything you want me to write about? Let me know. I am open to writing about any subject, mainly, but not strictly limited to technological development or climate change. I will also keep an eye out for current events, and contribute if I feel like I have something of value to add.

    General question on how the law is around using parts of open source code in an application and if it can be monetized? Wondering if I can I monetize an application that uses a portion of open source code, while the remaining was done independently? In general, I am not too aware of if open source code can be used and monetized?

      This is admittedly not a subject I am super sharp on. But you should know whether the open source code is granted through a Copyleft-style license agreement or not. If that is the case, you are not allowed to monetize your application, even if you are just using a few lines of open source code. You will have to make your entire source code available for free. If there is no copyleft-style license involved, you can use the open source code and monetize your application. Hope that is helpful.
