The New York Times is suing OpenAI for copyright infringement in its ChatGPT training system, claiming billions of dollars in damages. Microsoft is also named as a defendant.

The lawsuit alleges that millions of articles from the New York Times were used without permission to improve ChatGPT, causing it to compete with the newspaper as a trustworthy information source.

Multiple lawsuits

OpenAI is facing multiple lawsuits in 2023, including copyright infringement claims by authors, comedians, and experts. The company is also facing lawsuits against developers of generative AI, such as Stability AI and Midjourney, for using copyrighted artwork in their AI training.
