Faculty: School of Law

Educational Programme: Civil Law and Commercial Law (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2020

Artificial intelligence is one of the main directions of technology development in the current era, which can change the existing copyright system. The development of technologies based on artificial intelligence raises a number of legal problems. In particular, there is a problem of determining the legal regime of copyright works created by programs based on artificial intelligence. In this regard, the work is devoted to identifying possible options for regulating the legal regime of works created by artificial intelligence. It considers the sign of creativity as one of the criteria for the protection of copyright works and analyzes the possibility of recognizing artificial intelligence as the author of a work created by him. In addition, the various doctrinal approaches to regulating the legal regime of works created by artificial intelligence and foreign experience in regulating this issue, in particular, the experience of Japan, the EU, the UK, the US and China are considered in the work.
