18. passive copyright doesn't apply to works created by generative AI, though, does it?

As I understand it, works created by generative AI without a human author aren't eligible for copyright. (This is one of the things that actually helped the writers in the writers strike.) Bateman's argument was that the producers don't care about making films with real humans anymore, and if they can get people to pay for AI-generated entertainment experiences that are fully customized they won't have to worry about copyright protections, because they'll be profitable without any need for reproduction.

It will be interesting to see what is actually in the agreement. LudwigPastorius Nov 2023 #1
Yes. But it's worrisome that they haven't released those details on AI yet. highplainsdem Nov 2023 #7

She had the law wrong, so I'll withhold my opinion Ms. Toad Nov 2023 #9
I'm guessing she means they won't even bother to pay the small fee to register the copyright. highplainsdem Nov 2023 #10
I suspect she simply doesn't know the law. Ms. Toad Nov 2023 #11
that sounds so condescending orleans Nov 2023 #12
Yes. n/t Ms. Toad Nov 2023 #13
so then the whole copyright idea for AI generated material is moot since you have to be human to orleans Nov 2023 #14
She meant enforcing copyright. She wasn't being precise with her language. Yavin4 Nov 2023 #16
