Latest proposals from the UK Parliament to protect creative industries against the risks posed by AI

26 September 2023, United Kingdom

At the end of August, the Culture, Media and Sport Committee (""Committee"") published a report called ""Connected tech: AI and creative technology"" that explores the impact of the development of AI on the UK's creative industries. The Committee is appointed by the House of Commons to scrutinise the spending and policy decisions of DCMS and its associated public bodies.

Under the report, the Committee has made positive recommendations in favour of creators following a prior proposal made by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) to change UK law in a way that would have diminished (or even eliminated) protections for rights holders in furtherance of the use and development of AI.
