New York, NY — February 7, 2019 — Katherine E. Lewis was interviewed in a February 1st, 2019 Law 360 article on virtual reality and augmented reality as new tools being utilized by the construction industry. VR and AR offer insight as to what the completed project will look like and bring attention to potential problems in the structure before competition, saving time and money. Attorneys should familiarize themselves with this new technology, and how they can be used in their client’s projects and handled in their client’s contracts. Well-drafted contracts help to avoid issues with ownership or IP. Katherine in her interview states, “Conversations about intellectual property are generally case-specific, but attorneys should ensure everyone’s standing behind the rights of whatever they’re providing to the visualization and that there’s an agreement on who owns whatever’s used on the job.”
