A Scientist Has Filed Suit Against the U.S. Copyright Office, Arguing His A.I.-Generated Art Should Be Granted Protections, Min Chen, δημοσίευση Artnet News [12/1/2023]Marilena Pateraki
A computer scientist has filed suit against the U.S. Copyright Office, asking a Washington D.C. federal court to overturn the office’s refusal to grant copyright protection to an artwork created by an A.I. system he built.
The work at the center of the suit is titled A Recent Entrance to Paradise, which was generated in 2012 by DABUS, an A.I. system developed by Stephen Thaler, the founder of Imagination Engines Incorporated, an advanced artificial neural network technology company.
Other requests for reconsideration, submitted by Thaler in September 2019, May 2020, and February 2022, were similarly rejected, again for the lack of “traditional human authorship.”
The current Copyright Law of the United States grants copyright to “the author or authors of the work.” Thaler’s motion, filed on January 10 by attorney Ryan Abbott, argues that the work in question “satisfies the requirements set forth in the Copyright Act”—that because Thaler “invested and owns the original property [DABUS]… its output, of all kinds, automatically vests in him,” particularly in the context of work-for-hire.
