New York Times on OpenAI-Microsoft lawsuit

US-based daily newspaper New York Times filed a lawsuit against OpenAI and Microsoft over copyright issues. The influential magazine accused the two companies of using millions of their articles without permission to train chatbots.

According to the Times, this is the first copyright case by a top US media outlet against OpenAI, maker of ChatGPT, and Microsoft, maker of an AI platform called 'CoPilot'.

The New York Times filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Manhattan federal court. The lawsuit alleges that OpenAI and Microsoft used millions of their articles as an alternative way to deliver information to readers. Through this, it is alleged that these two organizations tried to "free use the huge investment of the New York Times in journalism".

Meanwhile, OpenAI and Microsoft have said that using copyrighted works to train AI products falls under 'fair use'. And it is only legal doctrine that prevents the uncontrolled use of copyrighted works.

The US Copyright Office website says that 'modifiable' content that adds 'something new in terms of information or features' is more likely to be considered 'fair'.

The magazine did not claim any specific compensation in the copyright question. However, its estimated loss could be "hundreds of billions of dollars," according to Reuters.

The New York Times says it wants to destroy OpenAI and Microsoft's chatbot models and training systems that use media data.

However, the 172-year-old newspaper reported that the talks with the two companies to 'exchange mutual benefits' to avoid lawsuits failed.

"We respect the rights of content creators and owners." OpenAI said in an emailed statement.

“Our ongoing discussions with The New York Times have been productive and are moving forward constructively. However, we are surprised and disappointed by their actions."

In this regard, Reuters did not get a response when asked for a comment from Microsoft.

Previously, popular novelists such as David Baldacci, Jonathan Franzen, John Grisham and Scott Turow sued OpenAI and Microsoft in federal court in Manhattan. In that case, they claim, the companies' AI systems may have stolen information from several thousand of their books.

Seven years before this lawsuit was filed, the Times filed a lawsuit in the US Supreme Court challenging Google's holding of millions of books in its digital library. However, at that time the court dismissed the case.
