🚨Big news for AI artists Copyright Office affirms registration of AI-created comic book. A bit surprised at this outcome since works must be created by a human to be registered. I suppose they were convinced that inputs into the AI model was sufficient. Curious how this will impact the Thaler litigation (…)—my guess is not much since in that case the plaintiff admitted (I think) 0 human input.

I received the Copyright Office's decision today about Zarya of the Dawn. The great news is that they affirmed my copyright, so Zarya of the Dawn will stay officially registered.
On closer reading, looks like a copyright in the overall comic book was registered, but not the individual images. Copyright Office previously said they’re coming out with AI guidance—I imagine that’s coming very soon given this decision.
