Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies have a transformative effect on society and important implications for intellectual property (IP) law. Its impact on creation is no longer abstract, with creative works already being generated by AI.

CISAC and its members are discussing with policy makers the impact of AI on Authors’ rights and Copyright - and the potential need for legislative and regulatory action.

CISAC has set up a dedicated working-group on AI in order to help define positions and contribute to the different ongoing discussions at international and regional levels. The group submitted a contribution to the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) in 2020, as part of its consultation on Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property Policy.

CISAC will continue to engage in these discussions to help policymakers find the best way forward to address AI related issues and monitor initiatives in the United States and in Europe.
