A Similarity Assessment in Copyright Works: The Insertion of Intelligent Technology to Provide Certainty to Rights Holders and the Public Sector


  • Jesus Manuel Niebla Zatarain University of Edinburgh School of Law


Intelligent technology is currently being used in the creation of artistic works. These devices offer new operational approaches such as the emulation of human cognitive processes required to develop a specific form of art along with the capacity to operate law compliantly.

In the present article, a potential solution for this is explored through the use of statistical and syntactical tools, which will increase the legal operative efficiency presented by these devices.
