In early 2019, EUIPO established an Impact of Technology Expert Group (EG) composed of experts with knowledge and practical experience of monitoring the impact of new and emerging technologies on the infringement and enforcement of IP, including copyright and designs.

The EG has published a report analysing the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the infringement and enforcement of copyright and designs in the production and marketing of physical goods and in the sharing of digital content.
