Abstract

Scholars have been grappling with the challenges posed by generative Artificial Intelligence (gAI) on copyright law. The question is whether we should apply 20th century laws to regulate 21st century technology, or should there be a recalibration of copyright law? In doing so, we cannot avoid the most fundamental question of all: what kind of culture do we want as a society? One diluted by gAI cultural products, where authors are replaced, or one where human authors get preferential treatment so that human creativity can continue to thrive?

Keywords: gAI, generative Artificial Intelligence, copyright, originality, creativity, blockchain, style, human flourishing, culture
