"[The EP’s AI Act] documentation obligations will prove either difficult to comply [with] or ineffectual, and the safeguards obligation might require development of Content ID like tools and even lead to overfiltering."

"The goal of [having] generative AI providers listing all or most of the copyrighted material that they are including in their training datasets in an itemised manner with clear indication of rights ownership claims (...): it's impossible to comply with it."
2 / 9
"The low threshold of originality, the territorial fragmentation of copyright and its ownership, absence of a registration requirement for works, and in general the poor state of (...) metadata, kind of demonstrate this impossibility [of the EP’s AI Act obligations]."

"Focus more on improving access to datasets, incentivising cooperation between providers and rights holders, and possibly [standardising] the reservation of rights or opt-outs (...) under the [Copyright in the Digital Single Market] Directive."

"There has long been a tradition of unequal contractual relationships between (...) artists and their commercial exploiters (...): [it is] crucial that creators are protected against signing away these training rights absent appropriate remuneration."
5 / 9
"Rules that attempt to safeguard freedom of expression and obligations to prevent illegal content in the DSA would not necessarily directly apply [to] generative AI tools."
6 / 9
"Overfiltering or overblocking: (...) it's very easy, and you see it already in the copyright discussions, the tendency to propose blunt tools like keyword filtering at the prompt stage or really strong matching filtering at the actual output stage."
7 / 9
"Bolster the [EU AI Act] language (...): there's a real risk here that voluntary solutions (...) would lead to an outcome where a lot of output is filtered contrary to (...) freedom of expression."
8 / 9
"The real danger: (...) the lack of clear direct application of all the discussions and acquis that we have on the copyright side for filtering by OCSSPs or on the DSA (...). Clarification could come (...) by better formulation of the provision."
