As Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to advance and generate unique works independently, the question of whether AI should be granted intellectual property (IP) rights has become a subject of intense debate. This paper explores the advantages of extending IP rights to AI and examines the feasibility of effectively enforcing these rights. It delves into the prevailing skepticism surrounding AI's eligibility for IP rights and how existing statutes worldwide reflect this skepticism. By examining the evolving landscape of AI and its impact on the traditional notions of authorship and ownership, this research aims to shed light on the ownership dilemma and the implications of granting IP rights to AI creations. The pros and cons of this tryst between AI and IPR are analyzed, inviting further discussion and considerations for the future of intellectual property in the era of AI. Henceforth, this article aims to explore the reasons why granting IP rights to AI would be advantageous and, if such rights are granted, how they can be effectively enforced. The study draws on relevant literature to address these aspects comprehensively and provide insights into this complex issue.
