Abstract

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has long been involved in various types of creative work. Creating
AI works can have a very important impact on copyright. Traditionally, copyright ownership of
computer-generated works was out of the question, as the program was merely a tool that
supported the creative process. Lately, computer programs were no longer a tool. It makes many
decisions related to the creative process without human intervention. While it may be difficult to
pinpoint the exact impact on the creative industries, it may affect the investment in automation
especially in the digital economy. The digital economy is being driven by the AI today: the industry
is using smarter connections to create a whole new business model, products, processes and
services that open a new level of economic growth. The widespread use of AI technologies will
also change established literary and artistic works. This is already happened, but is a consequence
of the digital economy, not just the AI. As a result, this article is aimed to explore the need to
rethink the possibility of the copyright ownership for non-human or AI to fostering the copyrighted
materials intentionally created in the digital economy, on the one hand, the need to reject this
possibility of reforming the existing copyright law in order to ensure that the right incentives for the
creation of new knowledge exist should apply only to the human author. According to the
research findings, a redefinition of copyright involving non-human authors would undermine many
existing copyright systems and create further uncertainty in copyright protection. An effective
solution would therefore require consideration of the legal status of the copyright owner and the
need for incentives for AI developers. These two important conditions are necessary to ensure the
legal status and future development of the AI industry.
