Copyright Issues Regarding The Use Of Generative AI

''...the Copyright Act affords copyright protection to 'original works of authorship.' Although the Constitution and the Copyright Act do not explicitly define who (or what) may be an 'author,' the U.S. Copyright Office recognizes copyright only in works 'created by a human being.' ...Courts have likewise declined to extend copyright protection to nonhuman authors."

Requires that works be authored by humans to receive copyright protection.
