The aim of this paper is to analyze the Intellectual Property law at European Union and European countries level, in order to understand if Artificial Intelligence systems can be copyright owners. Secondly, the paper reviews the main doctrinal theories in order to identify the authorship of a work generated by Artificial Intelligence agents. In particular, we want to understand which human person can be considered a copyright holder in the event the Artificial Intelligence system cannot be considered the owner of intellectual property rights. Finally, the purpose of this research is to understand whether the recent exit of Great Britain from the European Union can favor a process of uniform Intellectual Property law within the European Union.
