Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly transforming the way we live, work, and create. One of the key areas where AI is having an impact is copyright law. The use of AI in the creative process raises important questions about copyrightability, liability for infringement, and fair use of copyrighted material. These questions are particularly relevant in India, where the creative industries are a major contributor to the economy and where the legal framework for copyright law and AI is still evolving. The purpose of this research paper is to explore the legal implications of AI for copyright law in the Indian context. Specifically, this paper will examine the copyrightability of AI-generated works, liability for infringement by AI, and fair use of copyrighted material by AI. The paper will also consider the international legal framework for AI and copyright law and provide recommendations for policymakers and stakeholders in India's creative industries. Ultimately, this paper aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of the legal and policy issues surrounding AI and copyright law in India and to inform the ongoing debate on this important topic.
