Let’s get to it! 👇
Who is Taking the Heat for AI Copyright Infringement?
In a surprising turn of events, big tech are one-by-one announcing that they will shield their customers from copyright infringement lawsuits related to their generative AI products.
Adobe is protecting Firefly users; Microsoft is protecting its coding Copilot AI users; Amazon, IBM and Cohere are protecting customers of their foundation models, and newly - Google is protecting Duet AI + more generative AI product users.
It’s clearly a calculated decision
Sure, today it may be a cost of doing business today and a requirement for gaining market share. But with big tech legal protection, it’s more likely these cases fail and in the long run, it will likely reduce the cost and risks of copyright infringement.
For all of us, this is great news
These companies’ indemnification covers both the training data and the results created from foundation models. And more importantly - instead of individual users needing to be concerned; big tech will foot the bill.
