The U.S. Copyright Office (USCO) released its decision this past week in Kristina Kashtanova’s case about the comic book, Zarya of the Dawn. Kashtanova will keep the copyright registration, but it will be limited to the text and the whole work as a compilation. In one sense this is a success, as the Office was previously threatening to revoke the copyright altogether. But the Office limited the registration and specifically excluded the individual images created by Kashtanova from the copyrighted material. This is a setback for all the artists that would like to use artificial intelligence (AI) tools as part of their creative process.
