Policy Brief: Copyright, generative AI and data mining - Dr Hayleigh Bosher


The government is considering how it should regulate AI training models. Originally, it proposed an extension to the copyright exception for data mining. Read the Policy Brief by Dr Hayleigh Bosher (Brunel Law).

Policy advice: 

  • Confirm that under current law AI firms need licenses for data mining.
  • Consider variations or alternatives to an any-purpose copyright exception.
  • Use copyright as a tool to balance interests, understanding that AI firms and creative industries are not separate stakeholders.
