AI and Legal Personality – on algorithm produced art

A great piece on Scientific American (see Is Art Created by AI Really Art) on the philosophical implications as well as the economic ones of AI  produced art jokingly raises a provocative question at the end of the article “When an AI-composed song wins the Grammy, who gets the trophy”? This is actually a complex legal issue which over time will need to be addressed. As I already wrote in previous posts, the issue of legal personality for AI, in particular that with deep learning functions, will need to be considered.  This will of course impact primarily (and more urgently) liability issues but at some point more creative expressions will need to be considered as well.
