AI Art Platform Hit With Copyright Lawsuit, Taylor Michael, δημοσίευση στο Hyperallergic [18/1/2023]
Getty Images says it has started legal proceedings against Stability AI, the company behind the generative AI art tool Stable Diffusion. In a statement on Tuesday, January 17, the stock photo company alleged that Stability AI infringed on Getty’s intellectual property rights.
Stability AI used “millions of images protected by copyright and the associated metadata owned or represented by Getty Images” to train their software without proper licensing, reads the statement, shared with Hyperallergic. Getty argues that the artificial intelligence tool does not respect the rights of its content creators.
Getty Images CEO Craig Peters told the Verge that the company issued Stability AI a “letter before action” in advance of pending legal action in the United Kingdom. However, a Stability AI representative told Hyperallergic that they have not been served any documents. “Please know that we take these matters seriously. It is unusual that we have been informed about this intended legal action via the press … Should we receive them, we will comment appropriately,” the spokesperson said.
