OpenAI and its financial backer Microsoft were sued on Friday in Manhattan federal court by a pair of nonfiction authors who say the companies misused their work to train the artificial-intelligence models behind the popular chatbot ChatGPT and other AI-based services.

Writers Nicholas Basbanes and Nicholas Gage told the court in a proposed class action that the companies infringed their copyrights by including several of their books as part of the data used to train OpenAI’s GPT large language model.

Representatives for Microsoft and OpenAI did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the complaint.

New York Times sues OpenAI, Microsoft in copyright clash

The lawsuit follows several others filed by fiction and nonfiction writers ranging from comedian Sarah Silverman to ‘Game of Thrones’ author George R.R. Martin against tech companies over the alleged use of their work to train AI programs.

The New York Times also sued OpenAI and Microsoft last week over the use of its journalists’ work to train AI applications.

Basbanes and Gage are both former journalists. Their lawyer, Michael Richter, said it was “outrageous” that the companies could use their works to “power a new billion-dollar-plus industry without any compensation.”

If there isn’t a class-action lawsuit, every single piece of art that was created in the US that made it a superpower, will go to waste because it’ll be plagiarized by anyone who uses ChatGPT for free. The US didn’t have to send its tanks and turn every city around the world into Hiroshima and Nagasaki even though quite a few had been turned into rubble in the past 5-6 decades. All they had to do was send their movies or even actors and sports starts like Muhammad Ali when they needed them for diplomacy. Pakistan, for example, needed the relatively darker Caucasian Angelina Jolie to be charmed. Although, it was the inbred intellectually bankrupt Punjabi “elite” but it worked in either case from the US perspective. If every work of art that Hollywood produces will be in the likeness of, or an amalgamation of past scripts and scenes, not only would it damage their viewership and quality, but also reduce their soft power all around the world. ChatGPT is a bigger threat to them than China.
