EACA Launches “AI and Copyright – Navigating Legal Challenges”

What is generative AI, and what can agencies do with it? Why has it become the talk of the town, and what do agencies need to keep in mind when tapping into the unlimited power of AI tools? How can they navigate the copyright issues?

The European Association of Communications Agencies (EACA) is thrilled to announce the release of its latest publication, “AI and Copyright: Unveiling the Legal Challenges.” In a rapidly evolving world of artificial intelligence, this document touches on the legal intricacies surrounding generative AI and its impact on copyright and, subsequently, agencies and their creative work.

The rise of AI technologies has been reshaping industries, from creative content generation to automation and everything in between. Bill Gates once stated, “The development of AI is as fundamental as the creation of the microprocessor, the personal computer, the Internet, and the mobile phone.” The possibilities are boundless, and so are the legal challenges.

The paper, put together by EACA’s Public Affairs team, explains the key concepts of AI and generative AI and how they are transforming industries, focusing primarily on copyright issues.

The document looks at the legal implications of input and output data and how different regions, including the EU, the US, and the UK, handle these aspects. It also explores the EU’s proposed solutions to address these challenges, such as setting up public repositories for copyright-protected datasets.

For creative agencies, it is a valuable resource for understanding the legal implications of using generative AI tools, as it highlights the challenges and uncertainties agencies face when deploying these technologies and the steps they can take to mitigate risks.

We have also included insightful recommendations for agencies on establishing internal policies, reviewing terms and conditions, and ensuring that AI tools are trained on data that is safe for reuse.

EACA’s “AI and Copyright: Unveiling the Legal Challenges” is a must-read for businesses and agencies venturing into generative AI.
