On Monday, December 18, 2023, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released its report on takeaways gleaned from a public event it held in October with creative professionals, including artists and authors. The 43-page report, entitled, “Generative Artificial Intelligence and the Creative Economy Staff Report: Perspectives and Takeaways,” provides an insider view of the FTC’s interest and thoughts on learning about the risks of generative AI on creative work. It is “intended as a useful resource for the legal, policy and academic communities who are considering the implications of generative AI. That, and establishing its jurisdiction over AI and the issues that “implicate the FTC’s enforcement and policy authority.”
