The revelation of five additional parks makes it clear that there is far more to Westworld than initially meets the eye, and the continued exploration of this fantastic yet twisted Delos Destination depicted in the HBO hit Westworld presents an ever-growing bundle of legal questions and conundrums. The all-star posse of speakers from last year’s standing-room-only program returns. Ninth Circuit Justice John B. Owens,professor Betsy Rosenblatt, attorney and adjunct professor Paul Burns, attorney Farah Bhatti, and moderator Michael Lovitz discuss the top legal questions posed in the second season of HBO’s groundbreaking show, including numerous criminal activities by humans and hosts alike, corporate malfeasance and misappropriation of corporate assets, what is (and isn’t) intellectual property in these Delos parks, and even parsing out the question of the ownership of one’s own thoughts and dreams. And this year perhaps they’ll settle the question of just who really owns the intellectual property created by the robot hosts.
