Published response to the consultation on UK Artificial Intelligence and IP: copyright and patents

On 28 June 2022, the UK government published its response to the consultation on "Artificial intelligence and intellectual property: copyrights and patents". The response focused on copyright protection for computer-generated works (CGWs); exceptions to copyright for text and data mining (TDM) and patent protection for AI inventions. Regarding computer-generated works, the government does not currently plan changes to the law since there is no evidence that protection for CGWs is harmful. Regarding text and data mining (TDM), the government plans to introduce a new copyright and database exception which would allow TDM for any purpose. Concerning AI-devised inventions, the government does not envisage any changes to UK patent law but intends to keep this area of law under review. The Government had opened the consultation from October 2021 to January 2022.
