AI-generated content's unique challenge blurs human-machine creation lines. Examining this content's duality within intellectual property, the paper probes copyright, patentability, and ownership issues and illuminate complex ownership and protection dynamics.

Patents incentivize innovation via exclusive inventor rights. Delving into patent law and AI, the article discusses challenges in addressing inventiveness, patenting AI processes, human creativity, and collaboration. Ethical and legal dilemmas arise with AI's growth, intersecting with IPR. Bias in algorithms, AI's labor market impact, and misinformation concerns are explored, highlighting IPR's role in resolving them without stifling innovation.

Open innovation's rise is explored, focusing on open-source AI projects' impact on intellectual property. Balancing commercial interests and common good, the paper investigates AI's collaborative potential.
