Blank Rome partner David M. Perry, co-chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property & Technology practice group, will serve as a panelist at Radio Ink’s Forecast 2024 conference, being held Wednesday, November 15, 2023, at Harvard Club of New York City.


Forecast gathers owners, CFOs, group executives, managers, and Wall Street analysts to discuss conditions and predictions for the coming year for broadcast and advertising. It provides participants the opportunity to hear about trends, focus on major issues in a joint setting, and meet trendsetters shaping and analyzing the future. Though the primary focus is on the numbers, this conference examines the information that drives those numbers.


David’s session, “The Promise and Pitfalls of AI Technology in Broadcasting,” will take place on Friday, April 16, from 1:00 to 1:50 p.m. EDT.

While artificial intelligence (“AI”) unleashes exciting new opportunities for broadcasters, its immense capabilities have also raised significant concerns regarding copyright infringement, misrepresentation, and identity theft. And that only scratches the surface of what this technology means to business, broadcast, and society. This session will explore the ethical considerations surrounding the use of AI tools and services by broadcasters and examine the potential influence of legal factors on the future application of AI.
