Copyright, Protection, Artificial intelligence, Patentability


The aspect of evolution cannot be controlled because we cannot restrict people to think in a particular way, rather we can make the laws to suit the present condition while keeping the futuristic mindset. As there was mention about the Artificial Intelligence an expert Dr. Kai-Fu Lee states that AI shall penetrate in all the sector in the near future, it’s not only him but we our-self could experience the usage of AI in the existing technology we use. This paper has stepped further in assessing the need for the granting of patent in relevance to the present and at the same time tried emphasizing the limitations that the nation would suffer if not granted patents to CRI and AI, In brief, the loss of opportunity is deeply discussed in this paper. At the conclusion, the paper state the importance of law making and the scope and edge which needs to be given for computer generated inventions and AI, and if not given, how that would lead to negative trend in AI and CRI inventions and how that is going to impact the economy in coming future. Therefore, proper IP protection through patents is needed and not copyright, the above said statement is used because in general, there is a misconception of protecting the Computer programmes and Algorithms using Copyright under Copyright Act, 1957.

Hence, patent protection is viable considering the futuristic purpose of the business in monetizing the gain through licensing and for the progression development of the
