More often than not, new technologies challenge IP law and regulation. Now, as we stand at the threshold of the age of artificial intelligence (AI), new challenges arise. One of these challenges pertains to the way in which human society at large needs to deal with AI systems. In this regard, Ezrachi and Stucke observe that “[m]achine learning raises many challenging legal and ethical questions as to the relationship between man and machine, humans’ control -- or lack of it -- over machines, and accountability for machine activities.”Furthermore, according to Balkin: “robotics and AI feature emergent behavior that escapes human planning and expectations.”
The proposed research is intended to shed light on questions relating to the legal status of innovation and content that are generated by A.I.R. Specifically, I focus here on the question of property rights of A.I.R.machines over IP-type material that is generated by them. This research, like the general research pertaining to Generative AI, is preoccupied with dealing with the multitude of issues that arise out of this new technology.
