A federal judge ruled Friday that art produced by artificial intelligence without human input cannot be copyrighted.
District Court Judge for the District of Columbia beryl A. Howell agreed with the United States Copyright Office’s decision not to grant copyright protection to the owner of a computer system for system-generated art. Stephen Thaler, owner of a program called “Creativity Machine,” was denied copyright by the bureau for a work of visual art created by his system because it “lacked human authorship,” which Howell notes that it is “a basic requirement of copyright”.
“[T]his case presents only the question of whether a work generated autonomously by a computer system is eligible for copyright,” Howell wrote. “In the absence of any human involvement in the creation of the work, the answer clear and direct is what the Register gives: No”.
While more complex questions did not arise in this case, Howell noted that “we are approaching new frontiers in copyright as artists put AI in their toolbox to use in the generation of new visual works and other arts”.

“The increased attenuation of human creativity from the actual generation of the final work will raise challenging questions about how much human input is necessary to qualify the user of an AI system as the ‘author’ of ‘a generated work, the scope of protection obtained. on the resulting image, how to assess the originality of AI-generated works where systems may have been trained on unknown pre-existing works, how copyright can best be used author to incentivize creative works involving AI and more.”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today’s ruling elites are advocating policies that all previous generations of Americans would have considered absolutely evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the summer blockbuster “Sound of Freedom” – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. In fact, the US is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.
According to Tim Ballard, who has led many sex-trafficked child rescue missions around the world, the Biden administration ENABLES AND PROMOTES child sex trafficking and slavery with its horrific border policies, its push for the early sexualization of children, advocating the “early sexualization of children.” right to consent” about everything, including transgender mutilation surgeries, etc.
“Pedophiles are sitting right now,” says Ballard, “and saying, ‘We’ve been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don’t have to push it anymore, because the left is taking over for us.’ – TO AMERICA!”
Ballard’s concerns are borne out by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, “THE US GOVERNMENT has become the middleman of a human trafficking operation ‘children on a grand scale and billionaires’.
But this is only the beginning. The secretive criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elite’s affinity for pedophilia is exposed like never before in the August issue of the critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a ground-breaking issue titled “THE NEW AMERICAN EXCLUSIVE TRADE: How the Biden Regime Enables and Promotes Child Sex Trafficking in the US” WHISTLEBLOWER is available at both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
