Copyright in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

Following is a transcript of a meeting sponsored by the United States Copyright Office on February 5, 2020, that includes remarks from a variety of speakers regarding Artificial Intelligence and Copyright.

As PG is posting this, the meeting happened slightly less than three years ago and an explosion of artificial intelligence research, programs, apps, etc., has occurred since that time, so keepthe age of the transcript in mind as you review it.

The transcript is a 399 page PDF file. PG will attempt to embed the transcript next in this post. He has no idea what might happen, whether the TPV hosting service will be strained beyond the breaking point, etc., etc.

If the embed doesn’t work, you can find the original at Copyright.gov

or by cutting and pasting the following link into your web browser: https://www.copyright.gov/events/artificial-intelligence/transcript.pdf

That said, here goes with the embed:


UPDATE: PG received a stranger error message that mentioned the failure of a “fake worker” which may or may not refer to an employee of the U.S. Copyright Office when he tried to post the embed.

You’ll need to use the Copyright.gov link above to view the original Copyright Office transcript.

Evidently the Copyright Office doesn’t have any fake workers who fail.
