Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to examine questions related to copyright protection of worksgenerated by artificial intelligence (AI) under EU and Swedish law.

The first question that is examined in this thesis is whether works created by AI are at all eligiblefor copyright protection in Sweden and who is the creator of such works: the human behind theAI, the AI itself, both, or perhaps nobody. To determine who the creator of an AI generated workis, the term creator is first defined. The definition is then be applied to two cases. In the firstcase, a human and an AI collaborate to create a work. In the second case, the AI creates a workwithout the involvement of a human. Issues related to ownership of AI generated works are alsodiscussed.

The second question that is examined in this thesis is whether there is a need for copyrightreform and how such reform could be achieved. The problems with the existing legal frameworkfor copyright protection are listed. Different solutions or methods for reform are then discussed.Finally, a discussion is held on whether copyright reform is actually needed and what solutionmight best achieve the desired goals.
