With the rise of generative artificial intelligence (aka generative AI or GenAI) questions have emerged as to whether content generated entirely using GenAI can be protected as work under copyright legislation. A recent U.S. decision, Thaler v. Perlmutter, case No. 1:22-cv-01564,(D.D.C. 8/18/23), confirmed that content generated without human involvement cannot be a work protected under the U.S. Copyright Act.
