How does copyright work with AI-generated output?

AI (Artificial Intelligence)

Artificial intelligence (AI) tools such as ChatGPT, DALL-E and Stable Diffusion enable lecturers, researchers and students to generate texts and images for a variety of purposes. However, the use of these tools in a university environment raises complex questions about copyright. For example: can someone own copyright in AI-generated output and if so, who? And is copyright infringed when the training data used to generate this output contains copyrighted material? At the moment, it is difficult to give clear or definitive answers to these questions.

Some general copyright information and guidelines are provided at EDU Support (University of Groningen) for lecturers, researchers and students to take into account when considering the use of generative AI.
