AI, Human Authorship and IP Protection Issues

Can content created with artificial intelligence (AI) be protected by intellectual property rights (like copyright)?

What is “human authorship?”

Do you know why copyright law only protects “the fruits of intellectual labor” that “are founded in the creative powers of the [human] mind?”

Are you aware that the copyright office will not register works “produced by a machine or mere mechanical process” that operates “without any creative input or intervention from a human author?”

For a more detailed analysis, see my two videos below (from the metaverse), listen to my 5 minute podcast episode, and also see the seven-page letter from the United States Copyright Office dated February 14, 2022, with the link below. The letter specifically addresses the issue of whether AI content can be copyrighted and what the requirements are.

Please stay in touch and have fun leveraging this new technology!
