GENERATIVE AI LEGAL EXPLAINER
Generative AI raises a host of legal questions and concerns. Some of these questions will challenge existing legal rules and require new laws and policy frameworks. Others have answers that are quite well settled, notwithstanding the new AI context bringing attention to them.
This explainer is an evolving project to provide everyone with the types of answers that legal experts might informally provide to each other. Each question includes a short response to help you understand the most likely answer in the most likely cases. That answer is then given a confidence score on a scale of 1-5, where 1 is “it really is anyone’s guess,” and 5 is “there are decades of case law to support this answer.” These are followed by a long answer that explains the answer’s legal context and how various factors could impact it.
