Patenting AI – Comparing Europe & US by Stefan Müller:
“Case law relating to the patenting of AI has developed rapidly in recent years. Companies often find that the grant rates of their AI patents are significantly higher in their own jurisdiction than in other jurisdictions or that the obtained scope of protection is comparatively narrow in the other jurisdictions. An international comparison with focus on EP and US and examples of possible solutions are discussed.”

AI and copyright by Işıl Selen Denemeç:
“A multitude of generative AI tools for text, image, audio and video generation became recently available on the market and are used for business and private purposes. With that many copyright related questions arise regarding copyright protection and ownership for AI generated works.”
