Microsoft and OpenAI face a new lawsuit over copyright infringement

Microsoft and OpenAI are facing a new lawsuit over copyright infringement in the training of a large GPT language model, reports Reuters.

A lawsuit was filed in the federal court of Manhattan (USA) by writers and former journalists Nicholas Basbanes and Nicholas Gage. According to their claims, the companies illegally used their works to train AI.

The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Michael Richter, called it outrageous that companies could use their work to “create a new industry with billions of dollars in revenue without any compensation.”

As you know, this is not the first such lawsuit against Microsoft and OpenAI. For example, in December, it was reported that Pulitzer Prize winners are suing OpenAI and Microsoft for copyright infringement.

Soon after, it became known that The New York Times is suing OpenAI and Microsoft, accusing the companies of using their materials to train artificial intelligence.
