The case is the latest in a long line of complaints brought against developers of so-called generative AI – that is, artificial intelligence that can create media based on text prompts over this concern. And OpenAI is also facing a lawsuit, alongside Microsoft and programming site GitHub, from a group of computing experts who argue their code was used without their permission to train an AI called Copilot. US authors George RR Martin and John Grisham are suing ChatGPT owner OpenAI over claims their copyright was infringed to train the system. It comes after digital artists sued text-to-image generators Stability AI and Midjourney in January, claiming they only function by being trained on copyrighted artwork. Should further development of AI be stopped until pending issues are resolved ?
