The degree of freedom of movement when choosing the ability to produce autonomous work is not new, especially given the growing capabilities and diversity of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. Systems with AI are imaginative, unpredictable, self-reliant, autonomous, logical, evolving, information-gathering, communicative, efficient, accurate, and available from a menu of options. As more people have access to AI-powered creative tools, the issue of protecting the originality of AI-generated work has surfaced. Copyright nerds are more concerned about authorship, while artists are more concerned about copyright infringement. As a result, questions have been raised about the validity of works protected by copyright law. In this article, we discuss ownership and liability issues related to copyright in works created by AI systems. This article discusses who should be entitled to the benefits of copyright protection and who should bear the costs of any rights infringement or damage that may arise from the use of autonomous systems to generate creative works. The same themes are consistently emphasized in music and art. This article attempts to analyze potential violations of the use of AI technology within the Indian legal framework, inspired by the positions taken by countries around the world to incorporate AI technology into their legal systems. Copyright law and its relevance, as well as the viability of protecting AI technologies, are still hotly debated topics. For the purposes of this article, it is important to emphasize that the term “artificial intelligence” is used in a general sense and that the authors plan to discuss specific types of AI. The authors explore the potential for synergy between AI and copyright law, including examples from the traditional copyright law of different countries.
