My name is Leron Vandsburger, a third-year student at the Law School. I am researching challenges to intellectual property law emerging as a result of developments in artificial intelligence and artificial creativity. I moved to Montreal at the age of 18 to study chemical engineering at McGill University, and stayed in Canada to become a nanotechnology researcher, working on organic semiconducting materials. My research under the FLAS program focuses on Canadian intellectual property law and the theoretical origins of creator-rights in the Canadian system. The FLAS program provides invaluable opportunities to develop cross-border relationships with Canadian experts and to gain exposure to a legal system that is similar in some ways to its American counterpart but is intriguingly different in many ways. This experience has already benefitted my career development, as it has allowed me to reach out to people at the USPTO and IP practitioners in Canada to build a network.
