Construction Contracts and Augmented Reality: Ownership, Breaches, Allocation of Liability, Cyber Insurance
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide construction counsel with advice on developments in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), focusing on how these new tools are being incorporated into the design of a project, the monitoring of its progress, the impact on job site safety programs, and how these issues may and should be incorporated into construction related agreements to address ownership of Instruments of Service, and how these tools may impact project related claims and liabilities. The panel will discuss how intellectual property related litigation can be avoided if parties clarify their roles and relationships before sharing ideas and creating material for a project, and how use of VR on the job site can impact liability and litigation.
- Ownership and intellectual property
- Contract and drafting considerations
- Allocation of liability
- Use and discoverability of records in the course of claims
- Cybersecurity and insurance
The panel will review these and other relevant topics:
- Who holds the ownership and right of use for AR and VR programs, and how is that addressed in construction contracts?
- How can risk be allocated with multiple contributors to AR and VR designs?
- How can construction contracts clarify what constitutes a breach when deviating from AR/VR designs?
- When should cyber liability insurance be required by parties to construction agreements with AR/VR plans?
