OpenAI is facing laws over web scraping and copyright infringementwith one class-action lawsuit alleging the AI company is misappropriating personal data on an unprecedented scale and another claiming its ChatGPT AI model is being trained on copyrighted books without the authors’ permission.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Francisco, says OpenAI’s ChatGPT and DALL-E AI programs collect “stolen private information” from millions of Internet users, including children, without their consent. OpenAI is also accused of secretly violating terms of service agreements, as well as state and federal privacy and property laws. Microsoft, a major investor in OpenAI, is listed as a defender in the case.
