The British Copyright Council (BCC) represents those who create, hold interests, or manage rights in literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works. The following AI repository has been developed with our membership which include professional associations, industry bodies and trade unions which collectively represents the voices of over 500,000 creators, spanning the creative industries. The aim of this repository is to simply collate the emerging body of work on AI and copyright from across the creative sector. The inclusion of work does not serve as a formal BCC endorsement.

That being said, we do reiterate the importance to foster transparency over how creative works can be ingested and adapted throughout AI related processes will be increasingly important. IP licensing safeguards remain vital to protect against the unfair use and devaluation of copyright protected work and that this can best be accomplished by respecting existing UK copyright and related rights laws.
