Copyright Office: Spring 2023 AI Listening Sessions

by | Apr 5, 2023 | Copyright

In spring 2023, join the Copyright Office for four virtual listening sessions on the use of artificial intelligence to generate works in creative fields. Copyright Office staff will ask participants to discuss their hopes, concerns, and questions about generative AI and copyright law. The sessions will be fully remote and will focus on literary works, including print journalism and software; visual arts; audiovisual works; and music and sound recordings.

The Office invites artists, members of creative industries, AI developers and researchers working in those media, and lawyers involved with these issues to participate as speakers using the speaker registration form. Please note that the Office will review all requests and will endeavor to invite participants representing diverse viewpoints on the subject matter discussed at each listening session. The Office may not be able to accommodate all requests. If we are unable to seat you as a speaker at these listening sessions, please note that there will be other opportunities to share your views on AI policy with the Office. Nonspeaking attendance will be open to the public, and recordings of the event will be posted on the Office website.
