Will copyright ownership and the prerequisites for copyright protection need to be rethought and adjusted to accommodate AI-generated works and, if so, to what extent? Will AI bring about a paradigm shift in terms of how we view copyright and, Copyright Law? Is the complex relationship between copyright and AI one of conflict or complementarity? These are some of the central questions that will be considered at this year’s IMRO and Law Society of Ireland Annual Copyright Lecture.
