In a separate thread, Todd Carpenter also noted the March 16 announcement from the U.S. Copyright Office, Library of Congress, "to examine the copyright law and policy issues raised by artificial intelligence (AI), including the scope of copyright in works generated using AI tools and the use of copyrighted materials in AI training."

The full text of their announcement included the issuance of "new registration guidance". The Office notes that applicants have a duty to disclose the inclusion of AI-generated content in works submitted for registration. The new guidance provides details on how to do so, including how to update pending applications.
