AI – COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT: Sarah Silverman Sues OpenAI, Meta for Copyright Infringement

31 July 2023

In a recent development, comedian Sarah Silverman has filed a lawsuit against OpenAI and Meta, formerly known as Facebook, alleging copyright infringement. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, accuses the two tech giants of using her jokes without permission.

Silverman’s legal team argues that OpenAI’s language model, GPT-3, and Meta’s AI system have been programmed to generate jokes strikingly similar to those in her comedy routines. The comedian claims these AI systems have been using her copyrighted material, infringing her rights.

The lawsuit is a significant development in the ongoing debate about the intersection of AI and copyright law. It raises important questions about whether AI systems can infringe on copyright by generating content similar to existing copyrighted works.
