This is a great piece of work! Nice compendium. One thing that strikes me as either deliberately or accidentally genius about the current posture on AI copyright is that it stands to help avoid the worst fears of the Writers Guild and SAG. While certainly a lot of small YouTube-style content producers may not care that they can’t enforce IP protection on their AI generated posts, it seems certain that the likes of Disney and other studios will want to own the rights to their films and tv shows. That means, by extension, they are going to need human-made scripts and performances. Nice side effect.
