Intellectual property and AI problems

The debate around intellectual property rights of AI-generated content will continue in the coming months.

While training these algorithms using vast amounts of online data is important for making them more intelligent, it raises issues around using information without explicit consent.

There are also questions about whether copyrighted images or text used to generate new content that is not copyrighted is legally permissible. The reworking of information by AI is similar to human creative processes, but the line between creativity and automated plagiarism is blurry, especially at large scale. It will be interesting to see how the activities of data collection and information reworking by AI are addressed legally.

Notably, determining ownership over AI-generated works poses new challenges.
