More Information
The Future of Copyright in the Age of Artificial Intelligence offers an extensive analysis of intellectual property and authorship theories and explores the possible impact artificial intelligence (AI) might have on those theories. The author makes compelling arguments via the exploration of authorship, ownership and artificial intelligence.

First, the book advocates for a more holistic approach to authorship, arguing that there is no good reason to exclude computer-generated and AI creations from copyright. Second, it conducts an open search for the right ‘candidate’ for ownership. In doing so, the book explores several possible legal frameworks, including assigning ownership to the programmer, the user, the AI itself and other alternatives such as the public domain or author-in-law approaches. Third, the book explores the concept of AI as it has developed through the years in various fields, seeking to reframe the AI legal concept.

For academic scholars and law students these pages frame the theoretical debate about AI creations and provide in depth discussion about AI legal challenges.
Critical Acclaim
‘Dr. Aviv Gaon creatively uses human intelligence to demystify the complexities of artificial intelligence. A foundational resource for the novice to the expert, Dr. Gaon’s book answers pressing questions on AI, emerging technology and the future of human and AI innovation around the world.’
– Giuseppina D’Agostino, York University, Toronto, Canada

‘Aviv Gaon invites his readers to take a fascinating journey into the world of Intellectual Property protection for AI. His tour is wonderfully comprehensive as he draws on law, philosophy and economics in contemplating the possibilities. He grapples with difficult and timely questions that are destined to be with us for the foreseeable future.
– Roberta Rosenthal Kwall, Raymond P. Niro Professor, DePaul University, College of Law, US

‘As thinking machines enter the creative marketplace, Dr. Aviv Gaon has produced a thoroughly researched and wide-ranging analysis of copyright protection for works created by or with artificial intelligence (AI). The book's provocative conclusion, that the law should evolve to recognize AI as capable of copyright-protected authorship of creative works, is a must read for humans (and AIs) interested in the rapidly unfolding future of intellectual property law and the creative arts.’
– Peter S. Menell, University of California at Berkeley, School of Law, US
