The Independent said in documents filed Tuesday, September 19, 2023, in federal court in New York, that the authors allege flagrant and malicious infringement of the plaintiff’s registered copyright.
“The ChatGPT program is a large-scale commercial enterprise that relies on large-scale systematic theft,” according to the charges leveled against OpenAI.
The lawsuit was organized by the Authors Guild and also involves David Baldacci, Sylvia Day, Jonathan Franzen and Elin Hilderbrand. “It is imperative that we stop this theft or we will destroy our incredible literary culture, which fuels many other creative industries in the United States,” said Mary Rasenberger, CEO of the Authors Guild.
Rasenberger said a good book is written by someone who has dedicated their life to learning and perfecting their craft. This lawsuit is intended to preserve literature and authors must have the ability to control their work used by generative artificial intelligence.
On the other hand, a spokesperson for OpenAI said that the company respects the rights of authors and creators and believes that they should benefit from AI technology.
“We have had productive conversations with many content creators around the world, including the Authors Guild, and have worked together to understand and discuss their concerns about AI,” the statement read.
OpenAI is optimistic that it will continue to find mutually beneficial ways to work together to help society benefit from new technologies in a content-rich ecosystem.
Previously, several authors, including Michael Chabon and David Henry Hwang, had sued OpenAI in San Francisco in early September because it was considered a clear infringement of intellectual property.
In August, OpenAI asked a federal judge in California to dismiss two similar lawsuits, one involving comedian Sarah Silverman and another by author Paul Tremblay. In its court filing, OpenAI said the allegations misunderstand the scope of copyright, failing to consider limitations and exceptions including fair use that leave room for innovations such as large language models that are now at the forefront of artificial intelligence .
Meanwhile, on the retailer’s side, in this case Amazon.com, the author’s opposition to artificial intelligence has helped the company in its policy towards e-books. The online giant is now asking authors who want to publish their work through the Kindle Direct program to notify Amazon in advance that they are including AI-generated material. Amazon is also limiting authors to publishing three new books a day on Kindle Direct, in an effort to limit the spread of AI-powered texts.
