The question Artificial intelligence e copyright is taking an unexpected direction. Apparently, the creators of ChatGPT they said they were ready to cover clients’ legal costs in the event of legal action. This move follows OpenAI’s clarification of alleged copyright issues with its platform.
The CEO of OpenAI, Sam Altmanhe declared on Monday “We can defend our customers and pay the costs incurred in the event of legal actions relating to copyright infringement and this applies to both ChatGPT Enterprise and the API“. The compensation offer, which OpenAI defines as Copyright Shieldapplies to business users, ChatGPT Enterprise, and developers using the ChatGPT application programming interface. Users of the free version of ChatGPT or ChatGPT+therefore, were not included.
However, it should be clarified that legal protection in this context is not new to OpenAI. Google, Microsoft e Amazon they have moved in a similar way with their generative AI services and, again in this way, platforms such as Getty Images, Shutterstock and even software Adobe.

Altman made the announcement at OpenAI’s first developer conference, designed to provide a meeting place for developers and other professionals working on ChatGPT. The event was attended by approximately 900 people coming from all over the world.

Here, custom bots and other apps related to the well-known chatbot and a new model, i.e., will be advertised and sold GPT-4 Turbo.

In a previous statement from OpenAI, on the other hand, it explained how “We are optimistic and will continue to find mutually beneficial ways to work together to help people use new technologies in a rich content ecosystem“.
