Legal trouble for NVIDIA due to AI for copyright violations

Among the many cases of technology giants being sued due toArtificial intelligence is also added NVIDIA.

NVIDIA NeMoa framework developed by the famous hardware manufacturer, has been accused of abusing several books protected by copyright without adequate authorizations. In this sense, three authors have sued the company.

NVIDIA NeMo is a tool that allows you to create models of Generative AI e Large Language Models (LLM). The three people who took legal action are Brian Keene (author of Ghost Walk), I am Nazemian (Like a Love Story) e Stewart O’Nan (Last Night at the Lobster).

According to the indictment, the three books in question were part of a database consisting of 196,640 texts used by NVIDIA NeMo to learn the common written language. In this regard, the books just mentioned were reported and canceled as early as October 2023, precisely due to copyright infringement.

According to what has been reported, the authors have requested damages for themselves and for a (currently unspecified) number of various American authors, whose works have been exploited by NVIDIA NeMo in recent years.

The plaintiffs sought damages from an unspecified number of American authors whose copyrighted works have been used for NVIDIA NeMo training for the past three years.

The lawsuit brought against NVIDIA, as mentioned, is only the latest in a long series that sees AI confronted with copyright. The most famous is, without a shadow of a doubt, the one that saw the New York Times against OpenAI e Microsoftcomplete with back and forth as well as twists and turns.

On the other hand, as underlined by OpenAI itself, it is almost impossible to power AI without copyrighted material. A difficult situation, which portends several delicate situations for large technology companies in the near future.
