AI technologies cause a number of challenges in copyright law. One of the legal issues is whether feeding copyrighted content in machine learning program is a copyright infringement and, if so, how this affects innovation in AI sector and whether copyright reform is needed. While this question has been to a large extent addressed in the US (via fair use) and in the EU (via a recently introduced Text and Data Mining exception), it remains to be answered in other jurisdictions. This presentation will focus on Australia, as a case study, and present an on-going policy debate on this topic as well as discuss which copyright reform option would be most suitable and feasible for Australia.
