OpenAI ChatGPT User

The world of Artificial Intelligence as we know it could change forever with the war that OpenAI, creators of ChatGPT, has against some authors and media who have reported that their protected content has been included to train the system, which violates copyright laws.

Far from admitting its guilt, OpenAI has defended itself in a curious way, recognizing that without this data of interest, no matter how much it is copyrighted, AI chatbots would be little more than useless tools if they only used unprotected content.

ChatGPT and the use of copyrighted content

In recent weeks, OpenAI, the company behind the ChatGPT phenomenon, has been on everyone’s lips following the New York Time’s complaint on December 27, 2023 before the Federal District Court in Manhattan. The legendary newspaper reported that millions of articles and research have been used to train the language model behind the GPT-4 technology. This, according to those affected, is a violation of copyright and other content that have been used without authorization to train chatbots.

OpenAI ChatGPT Tool

OpenAI and other rival companies have been accused of illegally taking advantage of the work of others authors and artists. This unethical use of work done by third parties is further accentuated from the point of view that ChatGPT and other AI-powered tools gain financial benefit by taking advantage of the intellectual property of others.

This has led to a domino effect whereby, for example, prestigious authors such as John Grisham (The Pelican Brief) and George RR Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire) have sued the company for the use of their books to train ChatGPT. As for who uncovered this whole scandal, the New York Times, it has demanded that OpenAI destroy any system who has been trained using your work. On the other hand, OpenAI has reached agreements with publishers such as the Associated Press and Axel Springer to obtain access to their content.

Chatbots would be useless

OpenAI evaluated the presentation of these lawsuits, warning that the prohibition of the use of news and books for training chatbots would condemn the development of Artificial Intelligence in one of its most popular (and most economically successful) forms.

ChatGPT is infallible, don't trust it

It seems that according to those responsible for OpenAI, basing the training of their language models only on unprotected content would practically return useless and useless their creations.

“Because copyright today covers virtually all types of human expression, including blog posts, photographs, forum posts, snippets of software code, and government documents, it would be impossible to train today’s main AI models without using protected materials for copyright. Limiting training data to public domain books and drawings created more than a century ago might make for an interesting experiment, but it would not provide AI systems that meet the needs of today’s citizens.”

Are they then committing a crime? Not according to OpenAI, since they comply with all copyright laws when training their models because “we believe that legally copyright laws they do not prohibit training.
