Re: It's simple. It is not.

My take on this is that she used an AI as a tool, as opposed to that other guy who wants to get the AI itself as the copyright holder.

If it's a tool, then how is this that different to a word processor? A pen? A set of large dice with plot relevant actions on them (roll your own story), etc etc? The AI didn't think of what to do for making the end product, there would have been a fair amount of human interaction to get the AI to output that which was wanted (and having played around with Dall-E, easier said than done!), plus the plotting, scenario, and how it all fits together.

The AI doesn't deserve copyright any more than Bic does it one writes something with a biro. But she should, as the AI was a tool she used.
