AI and the legal challenges

I don’t know if some of these are behind a paywall,
But this dude Jason Allan has some balls trying to copyright his ‘winning’ art. If anyone can claim copyright, it should be the AI developers first.

Class action suit for stolen art used in training (this reads like an ambulance chaser ad but the details are in there.)

If the AI is learning - it’s getting it’s ‘inspiration’ from somewhere - and if it’s similar content/style etc. I would imagine it would fall on the person who created it.

I’m certainly no legal expert, but I suspect the courts will see it that way too. The AI software created the image, not the person who asked the AI software to create it. In my opinion, the only thing this guy could copyright is the string of text instructions he entered into the AI interface, and even that seems pretty iffy.
