Copyright infringement risk for AI
Generative AI output that is too similar or identical to existing work risks claims of copyright infringement. Uncertainty and variability around the ownership, copyrightability, and patentability of output generated by AI increases the risk of copyright infringement problems.
Why is copyright infringement a concern for foundation models?
Laws and regulations concerning the use of content that looks the same or closely similar to other copyrighted data are largely unsettled and can vary from country to country, providing challenges in determining and implementing compliance. Business entities could face fines, reputational harms, and other legal consequences.
