Hacking Creativity – Authorship in the Digital Age

Year of production: 2020

The analytical paper Hacking Creativity – Authorship in the Digital Age explores issues that arise from new practices in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems can produce literary and artistic works autonomously. This capacity raises major policy questions for the copyright system, which has always been intimately associated with the human creative spirit and with respect and reward for the expression of human creativity.

The author looks deeper into how policy positions adopted in relation to the attribution of copyright to AI-generated works could go to the heart of the social purpose for which the copyright system exists.
