Artificial Intelligence, Fair Use, and the Future of Copyright Law (Replay)

April 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm EDT


If you were unable to join us in person at IPWatchdog Studios for Artificial Intelligence Masters™ 2024, a part of the IPWatchdog Masters™ series, register now to watch the broadcast of the Artificial Intelligence, Fair Use, and the Future of Copyright Law panel. This panel was recorded on March 4, 2024.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms are consumingly copyrighted. Photos, artwork, music, and written text are being taken to train AI platforms. Those who are doing the taking claim the wholesale taking (which isn’t contested) is fair use and/or that they are not copying expression at all, but rather only taking facts. Copyright owners, associations, and companies that exist by creating and monetizing their creations take a wholly different view, arguing that the wholesale copying of creative, expressive, copyrighted works is precisely copyright infringement and is not fair use. Regardless of your viewpoint, it is clear that excusing the wholesale copying of expression as fair use will significantly alter the creative landscape.

From the viewpoint of content creators, this panel will discuss the recently filed copyright infringement actions, the alleged copyright infringement, whether the actions by AI developers constitute fair use, and the future of content creation.
