Fascinating interview of Harvard Law Professor Larry Lessig about AI on Nilay Patel’s Decoder.
“The view that I have which is surprising to people is that I absolutely think that when you use AI to create work there out to be a copyright that comes out of that….
“What we need is an efficient system to basically just allocate the rights.
“Now the tweak I would make, which I think is really critical, is I would say you get a copyright [using] these AI systems if and only if the AI system itself registers the work and includes in the registration provenance so I know exactly who created it and when. And it’s registered so it’s easy for me to identify it because the biggest hole in copyright law, its so-called property system, it’s the most inefficient property system known to man. We have no way to know who owns what.”Larry Lessig on copyrightability of AI generated works
