Artificial intelligence (AI) is already creating content that would be protected by copyright if the author were human. So what will happen when AI creates a global hit song, writes a successful book, makes fake videos that look real, or creates new valuable software or databases?

Please join us for a lively presentation that will cover copyright authorship, registration, and enforcement of copyrights in connection with works created with AI. We will review a number of AI content examples and analyze which may be copyrightable and by whom.


  • How do copyright laws apply to Big Data?
  • What may be in the public domain and what
  • AI output might infringe
  • Whether machine learning itself can constitute infringement
  • How investors, employers, programmers, and users can protect computer-generated creative works
