OpenAI and Microsoft are facing a lawsuit over allegations that they misused the work of nonfiction authors to train artificial intelligence models, such as OpenAI’s chatbot ChatGPT. The proposed class action, led by author and Hollywood Reporter editor Julian Sancton, claims that OpenAI copied tens of thousands of nonfiction books without permission to train its language models. This lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal court, is part of a series of legal actions brought by copyright owners against OpenAI and other tech companies for the alleged misuse of their work in training AI systems. This complaint is the first to also name Microsoft as a defendant. The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages and a court order to prevent further alleged infringement. OpenAI and Microsoft have yet to respond to the lawsuit.
