The question if, and if so to what degree, AIs can display creativity has been an important research topic within the AI community. Innovative use of computers by artists has led to speculation of the copyright implications of computer-generated works as early as the 1950s. Less discussed however are the implications of computer creativity for patent law. This pa- per aims to give a first overview of the issues that the legal system may face when AIs and robots start to find novel solutions to problems which result in potentially patentable inven- tions.
