We can see the impact of the proliferation of AI technology on the laws, rights, and regulations surrounding the lifecycle of trademarks, with more changes seeming to pop up every day. As AI technology evolves and laws and ethical standards adapt to keep up, trademark attorneys are left to wonder what the technology means and how it will impact their work.
