Zarya of the Dawn is a comic book created by Kris Kashtanova using the text-to-image engine Midjourney. The comic book is inspired by Kashtanova's late grandmother. Kashtanova received a U.S. copyright on the comic book in September, making a case that they own the copyright when they create something using AI. However, the United States Copyright Office (USCO) has initiated a proceeding to revoke the copyright protection, explaining that it had mistakenly missed that the art for the comic was created by Midjourney (despite Midjourney being credited on the cover of the comic). Kashtanova has been given 30 days to appeal the decision. During the appeal process, the copyright is still active.
