AI Writing

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) has exploded recently – it has been used to generate art, analyze data, and even write. Thus, many people have begun to explore these possibilities and are considering how to apply this technology. If you’ve begun to wonder whether AI writing will suffice for your new book or are looking to understand the implications of this technology, at Mark Graham Communications, this topic is actively on our minds as we aim to guide you through this technological revolution.

Unlike ghostwritten content, AI writing, is fast and free. This is one of the reasons it has become so appealing to many individuals. But, when writing a book, is AI too good to be true? Here are a few important points to consider:

  • Where is the source material coming from?
  • How does the relationship between a human ghostwriter and an author enhance the story-writing process?
  • Will AI-generated content be protected by copyright law?

Let’s dive into these points more in-depth.

AI writing tools like ChatGPT use online content to respond to the prompt given. However, there is no way to cite where this source material came from. The content could be unique or could be directly plagiarized from another source – without you knowing! This could put you at risk for a future legal battle centered on copyright infringement.

When you choose to use an experienced ghostwriter for your project, you leverage their experience in helping an author bring out the vibrant details and emotions that bring a story to life. This is uniquely human – AI writing cannot replicate the emotions that ghostwriting can help you convey, nor can it replicate the intimate knowledge of the book writing process that can help make your project a success.

Lastly, as AI continues to evolve, so too will the rules and regulations regarding the copyright and publishing of AI-generated content. According to the US Copyright Office, the extent of human control during the AI writing process has a direct impact on the protections it can receive under copyright law. While some AI-generated content may be protected, other works may not be. Thus, if you write a book with AI and it is not protected by copyright law, your idea may not be protected after publication.

Ultimately deciding whether or not to use AI tools to write your next book is entirely up to you. However, you must weigh these important considerations to ensure that your ideas are appropriately translated into a book.
