Guest lecture series Advanced Topics of Law & Technology

The act of creation is traditionally equated with a human being. However, developments in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) are challenging this notion. We currently have machines that can create books, music, paintings, and other subject-matter that would come under copyright protection when created by a human being. Non-human creations that amount to literary or artistic products thus raise questions regarding the legal status of AI creations.

The intervention of AI systems in the creative process implies a reevaluation of key concepts in copyright, (such as authorship and conditions for protection), against a revision of the rationales underlying copyright protection (since they justify the granting of exclusive rights in the first place).
