Artists Fail To Sue Midjourney And Stable Diffusion For Alleged Intellectual Property Infringement


Last January, three artists sued Midjourney, Stability AI, and DeviantArt for allegedly training a generative artificial intelligence (AI) that generates images using their work. Because permission was never sought, these three companies faced lawsuits for allegedly infringing on the artist's intellectual property.

But Judge William Orrick sided with Midjourney, Stability AI, and DeviantArt saying the same filing artists failed to prove the AI-generated works of Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, and DeviantArt Dream Up resembled the original artist's work. The judge also said two of the artists did not file trademarks on their works making there no intellectual property infringement.

This is the first case in favor of AI developers. There have been several other lawsuits filed involving OpenAI that allegedly trained ChatGPT using the work of prominent authors such as George R R Martin and John Grisham.
