“USCO’s Decision That AI Prompts Aren’t Copyrightable Underscores Tech’s ‘Black Box’ Problem” (featured quotes)September 20, 2023
Partner Matthew Carey recently gave insight for a Legaltech News article examining a U.S. Copyright Office (USCO) decision rejecting the copyrightability of content generated by artificial intelligence (AI). The article, "USCO's Decision That AI Prompts Aren't Copyrightable Underscores Tech's 'Black Box' Problem," outlines the ruling and how the USCO views human creativity versus AI-generated content.
In the article Matthew states “Perhaps if one day these models don’t have as much of a black box, and allow for more insight into how they read a text prompt, and for humans to control the output via the prompts a little bit more than they are now, it could potentially tilt the scales more towards registrants [not having to] disclaim as much as they have to now while using AI," he said, pointing to a clear need for more transparency in how AI generates content.
