Copyrights for Machine Translations Considered.
Kudryavtseva, G. A.
The translation of literature from one language into another is perhaps one of the most important problems in view of the fact that an inordinately large amount of human labor is expended on translation. A particularly complex problem arises before the scientists of all countries in connection with the need to become familiar with scientific literature and with scientific accomplishments described in the most varied languages of the world. This problem can be alleviated to a large degree by the mechanization of translation, the possibility of which has arisen with the development of automatic electronic computers. We already have some definite accomplishments in this domain, which demonstrate that machine translation has become a reality. The development of machine translation raises many legal questions, some of which are: the possibility of recognizing a machine translation as subject to copyright law, who should hold the copyright, and the legal protection of such a translation.
