11 Authors Joined to Sue Microsoft And OpenAI For Using Their Works Without Permission


Microsoft and OpenAI, the companies behind the artificial intelligence software ChatGPT, Dall-E and others have recently been sued by a group of 11 non-fiction writers who say that these companies have used their work without permission to train these systems' machine learning.

This group of writers includes popular names in biography/biopic writing such as Taylor Branch, Stacy Schiff and Kai Bird who are known to have written the book American Prometheus which was recently adapted as an Oppenheimer film which was very successful in the cinema arena.

The advocate of these writers, Rohit Nath said that Microsoft and OpenAI have received a very lucrative income from using non-fiction content such as American Prometheus and so on without any compensation or payment to the writers of these reading materials.

In fact, it was also reported that a number of popular fiction writers also said that their works had been used arbitrarily to train OpenAI's large language model, and fiction writers such as John Grisham, George R.R. Martin and Jonathan Franzen have also moved to sue Microsoft and OpenAI for the same.

So far, Microsoft and OpenAI have not released any statements about this latest suit, which was filed in a New York court recently.
