In the war between human creators and AI developers, where the devil himself will not really come to order, there is an unexpected turn. At the end of 2023, the American edition of The New York Times sued Microsoft and OpenAI for copyright infringement. The NYT believes that AI tools use newspaper content without permission, and they want money for it. OpenAI denies the accusations, saying that paying for AI training on certain content is like asking a child learning to read to pay for the content of a Primer. There is no final decision in this case yet, as with other similar ones, but the courts are currently siding with AI developers, at least in part. And recently, OpenAI decided that the best defense is an attack, and filed a lawsuit against The New York Times.

The essence of the claim of the “parents” of ChatGPT is that the NYT “hacked” ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence systems so that they produce results that violate copyright, in particular, “through misleading prompts that clearly violate OpenAI’s terms of service.” OpenAI directly accused the newspaper of paying the NYT to hack the company’s AI products. In this regard, the developers of ChatGPT are asking the federal court to dismiss some points of the New York Times lawsuit against their company.

The clash of the titans continues.
