The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has received more than 250 responses to its call for public comment on a Draft Issues Paper on Intellectual Property Policy and Artificial Intelligence, with submissions collected from a wide array of stakeholders from across the globe.

WIPO Director General Francis Gurry said: "We are pleased by the support that WIPO has received so far in this process. Both member states and other stakeholders have welcomed the paper with great interest and named the questions raised as a thorough foundation for the future discussions and an important step in the exchange of ideas on AI and IP policy."

In December 2019, WIPO issued its call for comment as the latest step in the Organization’s efforts to help provide focus to the conversation around AI and IP policy. The submission period for this draft issues paper issued closed on February 14, 2020.
