Professor Shubha Ghosh Weighs in on New York State Bill on AI-Generated Content in Books Sold Online

A bill (A08098) recently introduced to the New York State Assembly takes aim at the use of artificial intelligence-generated (AI) content in online book selling. The bill would require the disclosure of content generated wholly or partially with generative AI before the sale.

Shubha Ghosh, Crandall Melvin Professor of Law and Director of the Syracuse Intellectual Property Law Institute, spoke with the Daily Orange for their article “New state assembly bill regulates, provides transparency surrounding generative AI”. He explains that the proposed bill represents an effort to address potential risks that generative AI poses to consumers.

“This is sort of a first step in terms of trying to regulate and deal with some of the perceived dangers of using AI technology and publishing,” Ghosh said.
