Billionaire Barry Diller Says The Media Should 'Absolutely' Sue AI Makers Over Ingesting Text From Articles

Member Frank Gerratana spoke to Insider about the growing use of AI technology and how this will impact copyright laws. Frank explained, "As the use of AI technology evolves, courts will consider how copyright laws might apply. The way generative AI works is that these systems collect content from the Internet, and run it through a model that allows it to generate new content." He continued, "It's not clear right now to what extent that has copyright implications. It's possible we'll see court decisions that apply copyright law in ways that we wouldn't have expected, because this technology is new, the circumstances are new, and the facts are new."
