The advent of artificial neural networks has opened new artistic opportunities, but also new legal challenges. Smart programmes can take an image and process it in manners that resemble biological networks, resulting in unique and often unpredictable art. Copyright law has been drafted to consider originality as an embodiment of the author’s personality, which is one of the main requirements for the subsistence of copyright. So, what happens when you remove personality from the equation? Are machine-created works devoid of copyright? Do we need to change copyright law to accommodate autonomous artists?
