Copyright in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
On February 5, 2020, the Copyright Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) held a symposium that took an in-depth look at how the creative community currently is using artificial intelligence (AI) to create original works. Panelists’ discussions included the relationship between AI and copyright; what level of human input is sufficient for the resulting work to be eligible for copyright protection; the challenges and considerations for using copyright-protected works to train a machine or to examine large data sets; and the future of AI and copyright policy.
