This article discusses the legal position of an Artificial Intelligence Entity (AIE) that is able to create something novel, like an artwork. Rather than examining a fictitious being, I inquire the position of human beings, comparing it with that of a conceivable AIE. The nature of an AIE in terms of matter and mind is compared with that of a human being, after which it is inquired whether it may, like a human being, be deemed a legal person. This analysis serves as a prelude to the question of whether an AIE may be a copyright owner.
