AI-generated Content, Investor, Copyright Incentive


The AI-generated content that has emerged in recent years is at least formally original compared to traditional works. If such generated content is allowed to exile the market, its potential market effect and industrial interests make it difficult for us to ignore the existence of such generated content. From the perspective of copyright incentive, on the basis of the impersonal nature of artificial intelligence creations and the two-element theory of copyright nature in China, we separate the property rights of works, protect them as property rights alone, and allocate the property rights of works around investors.
