The Authors Guild accused OpenAI of copyright infringement


The Authors Guild, which defends the rights of US writers, filed a lawsuit against OpenAI. The claims revolve around the alleged massive use of copyrighted works in Large Language Model (LLM) training.

According to court documents, the organization is seeking damages under the Copyright Act.

“These algorithms are at the heart of defendants’ massive commercial enterprise. The developed algorithms are based on systematic theft on a massive scale,” – the document says.

LLMs threaten writers with the loss of their ability to earn a living. Defendant could train its models through works that are not subject to commercial rights, or pay a licensing fee to use copyrighted works.

In July, the American Federation of Television and Radio Actors began a strike against the use of artificial intelligence in the film industry.

Recall that in the same month, American stand-up, film and television actress Sarah Silverman sued Meta Platforms and OpenAI for copyright infringement.
