Copyright Office Seeks Comment on Artificial Intelligence

The U.S. Copyright Office recently 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 assessing whether legislative or regulatory steps are warranted. The office will use the record it assembles to inform its work and offer information and resources to the public, courts, and other government entities considering these issues.
  
According to the announcement, “The NOI seeks factual information and views on a number of copyright issues raised by recent advances in generative AI. These issues include the use of copyrighted works to train AI models, the appropriate levels of transparency and disclosure with respect to the use of copyrighted works, the legal status of AI-generated outputs, and the appropriate treatment of AI-generated outputs that mimic personal attributes of human artists.”
 
“We launched this initiative at the beginning of the year to focus on the increasingly complex issues raised by generative AI. This NOI and the public comments we will receive represent a critical next step,” said Shira Perlmutter, Register of Copyrights and Director of the U.S. Copyright Office. “We look forward to continuing to examine these issues of vital importance to the evolution of technology and the future of human creativity.”
 
Initial written comments are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on Wednesday, October 18, 2023. To read the full NOI, visit: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2023-08-30/pdf/2023-18624.pdf
