Abstract: « Artificial intelligence could be the most important event in the history of our civilization.” This sentence from Stephen Hawking demonstrates the importance that artificial intelligence can have in our society. The evolution of algorithms now allows artificial intelligence to create artistic creations in a virtually autonomous way since the user of artificial intelligence has only to start the process. This new way of creating raises many questions, including who the author of these creations is, and whether they can benefit from copyright protection. It appears that the criteria for granting copyright protection do not, in the current state of affairs, make it possible to integrate computer-generated creations with copyright. Indeed, these criteria do not allow to attribute the status of author to the artificial intelligence because AI is not a physical person. In the absence of protection by Copyright, one can wonder what happens to computer-generated creations. One of the consequences could be that the creations fall immediately into the public domain. Indeed, it would serve the public interest while keeping a very protective copyright of the person of the author.
