FEP position paper on Artificial Intelligence (AI)

On the occasion of its General Assembly in Paris on 15 June, the Federation of European Publishers members adopted a position paper on Artificial Intelligence. The paper stresses the opportunities that AI can provide for the book value chain to optimise production and distribution processes and provide new insights to benefit all.

At the same time, the paper emphasises that AI must comply with copyright and intellectual property rules and is not exempted from copyright rules, particularly when it uses pre-existing works. European publishers underline that is fundamental that proportionate transparency obligations should apply when AI is deployed and that AI developers should guarantee the transparency of their training dataset.
