On March 13, 2024, bill No. 303/2024 amending the IP Law to provide for the ownership of inventions generated autonomously by artificial intelligence (AI) systems was sent to the Science, Technology and Innovation Commission, after having been introduced to Parliament on February 20, 2024.

In particular, the bill provides that an AI system can be considered the inventor and hold the patent and for inventions that the AI system has autonomously created.
