Thoughts on the Intersection of AI and Copyrights? U.S. Copyright Office Requests Comments on Various AI Issues

The U.S. Copyright Office is taking artificial intelligence (AI) seriously. They've held webinars and listening programs throughout the year, but they now are requesting formal comments on the intersection of AI and copyright law.

The Copyright Office wants to hear from leaders and experts in the AI and copyright fields. Key issues they want to solicit feedback on include: (1) training AI models on copyrighted works, (2) transparency and disclosure bounds for use of copyrighted works, (3) copyrightability and other legal issues of AI-generated outputs, and (4) how the Copyright Office should treat AI-generated outputs, which mimic human artists. The deadline to comment is October 18, 2023.  

The Copyright Office is a must-watch entity when it comes to AI technology. Submitted comments will help shape policy and laws for technology and intellectual property as we move into this digital renaissance. 

Today, the U.S. Copyright Office issued a notice of inquiry (NOI) in the Federal Register on copyright and artificial intelligence (AI). The Office is undertaking a study of the copyright law and policy issues raised by generative AI and is assessing whether legislative or regulatory steps are warranted. The Office will use the record it assembles to advise Congress; inform its regulatory work; and offer information and resources to the public, courts, and other government entities considering these issues.
