OpenAI wants to tackle copyright challenges with the launch of the Copyright Shield program at DevDay. This initiative aims to provide financial support and legal defense to enterprise-level users of ChatGPT against copyright infringement claims.
Altman emphasizes OpenAI’s commitment to copyright compliance in their AI systems, which blend licensed and publicly available data. This follows similar initiatives by Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Adobe, and Shutterstock.
Notable tech companies, including Adobe and Shutterstock, join the pledge, offering comparable protections for their generative AI tools. The scarcity of clean, licensed data for AI training is a major challenge, with companies varying in their transparency about their data sources. Jailbreakers are also complicating the landscape by bypassing the constraints placed on AI tools.
The background reveals OpenAI’s history of lawsuits, with prominent authors like George R.R. Martin and Michael Chabon filing against alleged unauthorized use of their works in training ChatGPT.
