Impact of AI on infringement and enforcement of Copyright and Designs

Reference Number:  , Press Release Issue Date: Mar 08, 2022
 
Study on the Impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Infringement and Enforcement of Copyright and designs

The purpose of this study is to analyze the impact of AI technologies on both the infringement and enforcement of copyright and designs. These have much in common with the infringement and enforcement of other IPs (e.g. trade secrets, trademarks, and patents) through the application of AI, but this study will not take these other types of IP specifically into consideration.

This study is meant as a practical, practitioner-oriented tool to help understand the impact of AI and put this impact into a broader perspective. To this end, 20 scenarios have been developed to demonstrate existing or potential misuse of AI technologies to infringe copyright (and related rights) and designs, as well as the use of AI to enforce these same rights. The focus of enforcement of the selected IP is the application of AI in the field of law enforcement. However, there are, and will be in the future, many relevant applications of AI that overlap or have many commonalities with voluntary enforcement measures, civil enforcement, and certain aspects of administrative enforcement
