Getty Images Taking Legal Action Against Stability AI for Unauthorized Image Usage

Accusations of Unauthorized Image Replication by Getty Towards Stability AI

With the rise in popularity of AI-generated art and image utilities on the internet, the ethical and legal issues surrounding these technologies have escalated. This has led to a situation where legal action is being pursued.

var pref_connatix_event_title_prefix = ‘ConnatixLarge’;var prefMainPlayer=pref_connatix_event_title_prefix;var pref_connatix_catapultx_id = ‘tdw-main-player’;

cnxps.cmd.push(function () {

Getty Images initiated a legal battle against Stability AI, the developers of Stable Diffusion, an AI-driven image tool, alleging that Stability unlawfully utilized millions of Getty’s images during the tool’s creation without obtaining proper licenses.

“Getty Images recognizes the potential of artificial intelligence in fostering creativity and thus granted licenses to prominent tech innovators for AI system training purposes with due respect to personal and intellectual property rights,” stated Getty in their complaint. “Contrary to this, Stability AI, we believe, disregarded licensing options and legal protections to advance their individual commercial interests.”

The specific damages sought by Getty in the case against Stability AI have not been disclosed. On the other hand, Stability AI stated that this is the first instance they have been notified of the allegations through the media and are waiting for the formal complaint.

“We are taking the alleged claims seriously. It’s uncommon that we’re informed about the legal action through the media,” remarked a spokesperson from Stability AI to CNN. “We are anticipating the official documentation and will respond accordingly.”
